Nubya launch first solo project “Nubya’s 5ive” at the world famous JAZZ CAFE
London-based saxophonist and composer, Nubya Garcia, is one of the leading forces behind the resurgence of jazz-influenced sounds in the UK. Raised in a creative environment built by a set of Caribbean parents, her brand of afro-tinged jazz has made her a key component in a string of new and established groups: from work with MOBO Award-winning drummer, Moses Boyd, legendary jungle producer and toaster, Congo Natty, through to her own works as part of six-piece, Maisha, and the Nérija septet.
.The project — which explores the common ground between progressive jazz, hip hop and soulful, groove led rhythms — is set to cement her credentials as one of hardest working in UK music.
