Event Preview: Love Supreme Jazz Festival (Glynde Place, Lewes; Friday 1st July to Sunday 3rd July 2022)


DSC_1788_1-2200×1441

Mud, music and melodies. Festival season is almost upon us again. Here at Rhythm Passport HQ we’ve been digging through the line-ups, and the Love Supreme program has some gems. Held close to Brighton at the beginning of July, expect treats for world music and jazz lovers. With big names such as Erykah Badu, Gregory Porter and Sister Sledge likely to pull in the crowds, it’ll be a banger, but there are so many great acts you won’t want to miss.

Indian-raised and London-based percussionist and tabla player Sarathy Korwar will be bringing his blend of Indian classical music, electronic music with jazz that has been labelled Indo-Jazz. With an emphatic political stance, he mixes classical Indian rhythmic elements with influences of our jazz veterans, alongside messages of resistance and fighting identity politics. Expect drums and beats to be at the front of his set. We can’t wait to see what is to follow his 2019 offering of More Arriving.

For Cuban music fans, don’t miss pianist composer Harold Lopez-Nussa. A vibrant and spirited performer, his music will take you straight to the bustling, dancing streets of Havana. Mixing folkloric Caribbean styles with more modern poppy jazz, this is one to get you moving.

We can’t wait to see trumpeter Ifé Ogunjobi again too. A rising regular on the London jazz scene, he brings the multi-cultural styles we love to see coming from London’s urban landscape. Afrobeat and hip-hop infused with his Nigerian familial upbringing influences, he always brings something creative and new.

Paris-based pianist and composer Yessaï Karapetian has been bringing his romantic, jazzy take on the contemporary music scene since he was a teenager. Born in Armenia, he takes a wide approach to jazz and will likely be playing music from his new 2022 album YESSAÏ.  It’s beautiful and ferocious all at once.

Aside from these picks, we’re ever so excited to see world class rhythm-infused jazz acts such as Ezra Collective, Sons of Kemet, Nubya Garcia and Emma-Jean Thackray. This lineup has got us so excited. May the festival season get going with a jazzy bang.

Album Review: Sarathy Korwar – More Arriving [The Leaf Label; July 2019]

On the list of the worst conversation starters, “Where are you from?” would be right up there. Reducing the person to a Lonely Planet cardboard cut-out is one thing, but when the question is prompted by your accent, complexion or general foreignness, it becomes a euphemism for, “You stick out…

Boiler Room, the flagship online platform for underground acts to increase their exposure, tapped into a pre-existing appetite amongst the try-before-you-buy internet generation but that doesn’t negate the impact…
