Multi-award winning singer-songwriter Zara McFarlane, is the UK’s Black British foremost jazz vocalist. Eloquent and provocative her sound is distinguished by her melding of multiple influences from jazz, reggae, folk and nu-soul.
Her latest single ‘Black Treasure’ is a fresh departure in her creative direction, uniting her with experimental producers Kwake Bass and Wu-Lu. ‘Black Treasure’ is inspired by an exploration into Zara’s Jamaican heritage, which included an extended trip to Jamaica in 2018 meeting academics, and researching the early folk rhythms unique to the island.
Her new sound is the culmination of this research and weaves a subversion of the colonial legacy of slavery. The track is a “declaration, proclamation and celebration of black Britishness and womanhood”. Her amazing fourth studio album is an exploration of the meeting points between current electronic sounds and the traditional rhythms of Jamaica
