Soweto Kinch Quartet


We're working on it! Meanwhile, check out the upcoming Scottish Jazz Weekend programme here!

Soweto Kinch Quartet image

One of the most exciting musicians of his generation, multi award-winning alto-saxophonist, MC and composer Soweto Kinch has a unique approach: super exciting, hard hitting jazz, wrapped up in a rap/hip-hop fusion, and a warmth personality that draws audiences into a special relationship. His scalding hot, hard bop grooves; racing freestyle lyrics, hip-hop beats, rap and jazz riffs, have won him an unprecedented array of accolades including two MOBO awards, two Urban Music Awards and a Mercury Prize nomination…After a packed out show last year, Soweto is back with a special Quartet, featuring American pianist Eric Lewis, A.K.A. ELEW. Tonight, Soweto plays music from his latest concept album “Nonagram” as well as new unreleased original material. A set infused with great music, showmanship and sheer energy. 

“A real tour de force” (The Guardian)”.
