Next Generation Takes Over - (Im) Possibilities
LONDON Barbican / FreeStage
(Im)Possibilities is a creative band formed by young artists from across London (aged 14 – 25) and Guildhall School students that makes original music and collaborates with internationally renowned guest artists. For EFG London Jazz Festival 2017 they will be collaborating with saxophonist Nubya Garcia.
Open to musicians, poets, rappers and beat makers, the group grasps jazz music’s spirit of exploration of groove, improvisation and sense of constant change, whilst occasionally delving into African rhythms, world music, electronica, post rock, dub and other genres.
Taking inspiration from artists such as the Sun Ra Arkestra, GZA and Nicolas Jaar, (Im)Possibilities have performed alongside Sons of Kemet, TrioVD, Arun Ghosh and Orphy Robinson at venues like the Barbican, Walthamstow Garden Party and Rich Mix.
This programme is part of the #jazz100 campaign, celebrating the future of British Jazz. Find out more here.
