Preview: Nubya Garcia @ Village Underground (London; Monday 4th March 2019)

Nubya Garcia

There’s no denying that jazz and jazz fusion is a more popular genre right now than perhaps it was five or 10 years ago. This rise in popularity, I believe, can be attributed to the wave of jazz fusion bands in London, such as Kokoroko and Yazz Ahmed. A name that jumps immediately to mind when talking about contemporary jazz is Nubya Garcia.

Just as jazz is a free form of expression, Nubya is original and unique in her approach to her characteristic boundary-less jazz compositions.

Having performed with all manner of accompaniments, Nubya will be bringing her saxophone and more to the legendary Village Underground in East London on Monday the 4th of March, the perfect venue for the authentic and emotive motions experienced through the atmosphere at Nubya Garcia concerts. This is one date in only three on her tour, so a rare chance to capture Britain’s next biggest jazz star.
