GoGo Penguin

Live from the Barbican

GoGo Penguin

Cutting-edge contemporary jazz trio GoGo Penguin perform music from their latest album, for the first time since its release in summer 2020.

Polyrhythms, beautiful melodies and thunderous sub-bass lines combine into luxurious soundscapes, influenced as much by electronic music as minimalist composition. With mesmerising lighting sculpted by Lewis Howell, the trio translate their impressive live show to a digital stage.

Pianist Chris Illingworth, bassist Nick Blacka and drummer Rob Turner have been releasing music together since 2014. Their freestyle jazz approach to performance melded with a plethora of influences has seen them hailed as the ‘Radiohead of British jazz’ (Line of Best Fit).
