On Thursday, August 17th, three musical legends come together to create something beautiful at Camden’s Jazz Cafe. Arguably the most recognisable name of the three is Shabaka Hutchings, one of Britain’s most prolific saxophonists who you might know from his work with Sons of Kemet, Sun Ra Arkestra, The Comet is Coming, Mulatu Astatke & the Heliocentrics, Polar Bear, Soweto Kinch, and of course, Shabaka & The Ancestors, to name but a few!
For this special event, Shabaka Hutchings will join forces with Sarathy Korwar and Hieroglyphic Being for their first public outing as a trio. They previously recorded a 90 minute improvisational set with NTS which bubbled over with creativity and promise.
Sarathy Korwar was trained as a classical tabla player under the guidance of Shri Rajeev Devasthali and Pandit Sanju Sahai. Since moving to London, he has collaborated with jazz improv heavyweights like Karl Berger & Ingrid Sertso, and plenty of Indian classical musicians too. He’s also performed for the Dalai Lama, supported Kamasi Washington, and released an album on Ninja Tune.
The final piece of the puzzle is the enigmatic Hieroglyphic Being AKA Jamal Moss – an underground producer who has been on the Chicago House scene for decades. A futuristic composer, he creates lo-fi beats that refuse to be pigeonholed, drawing influence from genres like house, avant-garde and industrial.
Together, you can be sure that these three will create something totally original and moving – and that future jazz alchemy will happen before your very eyes! Get your tickets now for this one-off collaboration at the Jazz Cafe, first released tickets are available for £10
