Emma Rawicz: Visitor From Everywhere

EFG London Jazz Festival

Emma Rawicz is joined by an all-star ensemble at Kings Place for EFG London Jazz Festival to present ‘Visitor From Everywhere’, a brand-new tribute to the great Wayne Shorter, the artist behind legendary compositions ‘Visitor from Nowhere’ and ‘Visitor Somewhere’.


In a never-before-seen lineup, Emma Rawicz will be joined by a very special constellation of musicians, curated especially for this year’s EFG London Jazz Festival. The group features five strong musical voices, each with their own distinctive identity and impressive performance history. It is also a band built upon relationships old and new, to create a truly unique ensemble.

This performance represents something of a full circle moment for Emma, especially with regard to her performance alongside the great composer and trailblazing leader within the jazz community, Laura Jurd, who Emma first heard perform in this very hall over six years ago, at the beginning of her own musical journey.

Emma will also be joined by longtime collaborator Conor Chaplin, with whom she has toured extensively and forged a strong musical connection. Anton Eger is another star on the international jazz scene, having previously toured with Phronesis and Marius. He is an artist Emma has looked up to for a long time prior to their first musical meeting in Norway earlier this year. Finally, the legendary Jason Rebello joins the group for what will be the first time playing with Emma. Jason is a particularly exciting addition to the lineup, having previously played with Wayne Shorter himself.

For Emma, this performance is an expression of her gratitude for being able to travel so much and share her music so widely as a visitor, and to reflect that each person in the band is coming from somewhere else to be together combine all of their unique voices in the iconic setting of Kings Place’s Hall One.

This event will last approximately 2 hours, including an interval.
