Tomorrow’s Warriors presents Nu Civilisation Orchestra, led by Peter Edwards and featuring ESKA on vocals, for this exploration of the music of Joni Mitchell, through her jazz influenced classic album Hejira and her subsequent encounter with the pioneering jazz legend, Charles Mingus.

Entering the lyrically charged vocal realm of Mitchell for these performances is ESKA, the London-born British singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. The Mercury Prize nominee had already built a reputation as a singer through her work with Grace Jones and Bobby McFerrin before the launch of her acclaimed eponymous album in 2015 and was described by Gilles Peterson as ‘one of the most important singers in the UK right now’.
