Shabaka’s work transcends conventional notions of genre, drawing from a vast pallet of cultural influences. While undeniably a pioneering voice in the renaissance of British Jazz, his remit is much broader: he has performed classical concertos with world-leading orchestras, led several hugely influential bands (Sons of Kemet, The Comet is Coming, Shabaka and The Ancestors) and has recently released a critically lauded solo album, Afrikan Culture. A work of exceptional beauty and urgency, Shabaka’s latest album is focussed around the Shakuhachi, an east Asian instrument of which the artist is a major exponent.
A tribute to Pharaoh Sanders from Shabaka will be taking place at the ICA on 7th December.
