Black to the future: Sons of Kemet’s new album out May 14, 2021 on Impulse Records. First single and video, just released, is “Hustle” ft. Kojey Radical.
Sons of Kemet is one of the leading experiences with which the English scene has been reinvigorating the international jazz of these years, with a powerful shock therapy provided by 4 extraordinary musicians: Shabaka Hutchings, Tom Skinner, Theon Cross, Eddie Hick.
After the incredible successes of the other projects of saxophonist Shabaka Hutchings in 2019 and 2020 (The Comet is Coming, Shabaka & The Ancestors …), 2021 promises to be the year of Sons of Kemet with an album of great dynamism, which hosts vocalists such as Kojey Radical, Lianne La Havas, D Double E, Angel Bat Dawid, Moor Mother, Joshua Idehen and more.
Listening is believing the first single just released: “Hustle”, in collaboration with Kojey Radical and embellished by the backing vocals of the singer Lianne La Havas, is accompanied by a dance-metaphoric video clip directed by Ashleigh Jadee.
The band is defining an album presentation tour for summer 2021. For information on availability for Italy contact firstname.lastname@example.org
