Celebrating the life and work of spiritual jazz icon Pharoah Sanders (who turns 80 this October), Cassie Kinoshi and SEED Ensemble perform from his much-revered songbook, live streamed from the Barbican Hall.

A vital part of London’s thriving jazz scene, SEED Ensemble is a Mercury Award nominated ten-piece band, led by alto saxophonist and composer Cassie Kinoshi. Their style comes from the bustle of the city alongside the West African and Caribbean influences of Kinoshi’s heritage, exploring a blend of genres through original compositions and improvisation: a truly Black British sound.

The band’s line-up features some of London’s most exciting and innovative young jazz musicians including trumpeter Sheila-Maurice-Grey (Kokoroko) and guitarist Shirley Tetteh (Maisha).

Special guests just confirmed: Shabaka Hutchings, Ashley Henry, Richie Sievwright and Yahael Camara-Onono

Co-produced by the Barbican
