To keep you entertained through lockdown, this concert will be available to watch On Demand while we can’t be with you in person. Click to buy, and your stream will be available to watch for 48 hours.

Celebrating the life and work of Pharoah Sanders, Cassie Kinoshi and SEED Ensemble perform from his much-revered songbook, live streamed as part of EFG London Jazz Festival 2020.

A vital part of London’s thriving jazz scene, the Mercury Award nominated ten-piece band is led by alto saxophonist and composer Cassie Kinoshi. Their style comes from the bustle of the city and West African and Caribbean influences of Kinoshi’s heritage, blending genres through original compositions and improvisation: a true Black British sound. The 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), with special guests just confirmed: Shabaka Hutchings, Ashley Henry, Richie Sievwright and Yahael Camara-Onono.

Government guidance has changed, so we're unable to have a live audience in the Hall. You can still watch the show at home.

Tickets must be booked online in advance. Tickets to watch the concert online from your home are only available until the event begins.

Produced by the Barbican. Part of EFG London Jazz Festival and the EFG Elements Series.
