A more gender balanced night of jazz music comes to Woolwich Works for two nights this November.

Historically, very few femxle instrumentalists, composers, arrangers, and bandleaders have been part of the music history books. The W.Led Jazz Series has been curated to help recognise and celebrate their contribution to the industry. This collection of performances will feature a more gender-balanced night showcasing amazing talent of Raquel Martins, Plumm, Rachael Cohen, Juanita Euka, Ms Maurice and Rosie Frater-Taylor across two evenings at Woolwich Works.

Rachael Cohen will be joined by Raquel Martins and Plumm, to bring you a jaw-dropping evening of contemporary jazz.

Raquel Martins

Raised under the sun in Portugal, she grew up listening to the endless classics from the Brazilian and jazz repertoire. It was only when she discovered the world of contemporary hip-hop, soul and jazz music that she realised she could create something new with all the sounds she had been absorbing over the years. Whilst accompanying many established London jazz artists, including upcoming talent Poppy Ajudha, Raquel has been establishing her sound with her debut EP. Influenced by the likes of Hiatus Kaiyote, Amy Winehouse, Djavan, and João Gilberto.

Plumm

Plumm is a hybrid of vocalist, multi-instrumentalist, and producer hailing from South London with Welsh heritage. Graduating from the BRIT School and then a SOAS degree in Ethnomusicology specialising in North Indian Classical, Plumm constructs mood-driven soundscapes and gritty timbres. After being invited to play a live set at Maida Vale Studios with Moses Boyd for BBC 1Xtra, playing with Taylor McFerrin at Oslo in Hackney and championed by BBC Introducing London, Plumm is branching into genre-less territories and feminine power.
