Band on the Wall
Tom Excell guitar / Aziza Jaye voice / Jonny Enser trumpet / Nick Richards alto saxophone / Hannah-Mae Birtwell baritone saxophone / Oli Cadman keyboards / Luke Wynter bass / Finn Booth drums / Pilo Adami percussion
A blend of virtuosic players, skilled producers and inspired composers join forces to create an infectious sound drawing on jazz, hip-hop, afrobeat, dancehall, soul, reggae and dance music – expect ultra-tight musicianship and a powerful 9-piece, big band sound.
Since forming in 2011 at the then Leeds College of Music, Nubiyan Twist have risen to become one of the leading groups in the fertile UK Jazz scene. Known for their eclectic blend of styles and powerful sound, their thrilling and infectious grooves have consistently mesmerised audiences.
Their 2015 self-titled debut album, and acclaimed Jungle Run in spring 2019, led to their third massive album Freedom Fables, released on Strut Records in March 2021. The album was heavily playlisted on BBC 6 Music alongside live sessions with Gilles Peterson, Mary Anne Hobbs and Jamie Cullum on BBC Radio 2, plus their UK TV debut on Later… with Jools Holland.
“The type of record that should be blasted over a sun-drenched festival crowd.” Clash
“Nubiyan Twist explore oppressive mindsets while maintaining danceable momentum.” Jazzwise
“Energy, rhythm, youthfulness, madness, precision and multiple influences.” Rolling Stone
