Band / Music Description

The Joshua Jaswon Octet brings together critically acclaimed musicians from the Berlin, London and Amsterdam jazz scenes. Using powerful poems of protest as the basis for its music, the group's sound is lyrical, intensely rhythmic and steeped in the magic of storytelling. The octet will be performing music from it’s debut album Silent Sea. The compositions from this compelling new recording are based on the texts of modern British poems that consider the themes of migration, Brexit and climate change. The poems are set to shifting and evolving musical textures and brought to sonic-life by powerful improvisation and interaction. The collaboration between Jaswon’s octet and contemporary British literature has led to a stellar new sound on the European jazz scene. This concert is a part of the group’s album-release tour.
