LONDON’S FAST-RISING STARS OF SPIRITUAL JAZZ
ANNOUNCE UK TOUR FOR SPRING 2019
DEBUT ALBUM ‘THERE IS A PLACE’ IS OUT NOW
‘If you’re not moving to Maisha’s music, you may want to check your pulse‘ - Jazzwise Magazine
'Transportingly beautiful' - All About Jazz ****
'A blazing celebration' - The Guardian ****
Touring on the back of their recent acclaimed debut album There Is A Place (released in November 2018), ever-evolving music collective Maisha, led by drummer Jake Long, bring a fresh slant to the spiritual jazz tradition.
Whilst channelling jazz titans like Don Cherry and Pharoah Sanders, Maisha also imbue the music with their own individual influences including hypnotic West African rhythms and Afrobeat. The result is a brilliant, often heady mix that combines the spiritual of Alice Coltrane with the swing of Fela Kuti and the greatness of Kamasi Washington and Sun Ra. Expect an unmissable evening of shape-shifting, beguiling and intensely rhythmic music that firmly places Maisha at the forefront of modern British jazz.
