Here we come with a breath taking improvisational Afro-Jazz odyssey for the EFG London Jazz Festival. Don't miss this exclusive Mwalimu Express
one time only collaborationfeaturing 3 fabulous musicians
JASON YARDE (saxes) BEX BURCH (gyil) Batch Gueye (percussion,vox, dance )
Each of the trio are firing boundary crossing live performers. We've brought
them together to rock our Mwalimu world.

Jason Yarde Inspired and inspiring Composer, arranger, producer, musical director and saxophonist. He writes music that is spiritual, rhapsodic, hair-raising and formidable. Jason plays across a variety of styles including jazz, classical, hip-hop fusion, broken beats, R&B, reggae, soul..

Bex Burch is an exciting rhythm driven, forward thinking band leader. Bex spent 3 life changing years in the remote upper West of Ghana learning the deep traditions of the Gyil, a large African xylophone. She is pioneering a unique new approach to music making.

 

Batch Gueye Sensational Senegalese singer, songwriter, percussionist and dancer. Batch draws inspiration from the mystical folklore of the Baye Fall from Senegal. His searching songs and soulful voice evoke the uplifting galvanising beating heart of West-Africa.

 

  ...... and all those things that make the Mwalimu THE MWALIMU

Always Free, Always will be
