The resident artist at this year’s EFG London Jazz Festival is Terri Lyne Carrington, the legendary American drummer, composer, singer, and producer who has worked with the likes of Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter, Dianne Reeves and Esperanza Spalding amongst others.

She will be taking up residence over the first weekend of the festival in Kings Place, as part of our Venus Unwrapped series, in what will be her first EFG London Jazz festival appearance since 2016.

Social Science is an experiment and platform for interactions with musicians sharing a common language and bringing in their differences. In this second show of the evening, Terri Lyne Carrington invites some of the most exciting musicians from the British jazz scene, for a fresh and stimulating musical experience.

Emma-Jean Thackray. Repped by Gilles Peterson, RBMA, Sounds of The Universe and many more, rising mega-talent Emma-Jean Thackray excels as a composer, producer, multi-instrumentalist, singer, bandleader and DJ.

Soweto Kinch. Celebrated on both sides of the Atlantic, award-winning alto-saxophonist and hip-hop MC, Soweto Kinch has scored for Jonzi-D and collaborated with artists as diverse as Goldie, Akala and Ms Dynamite.

TrueMendous. The Birmingham rapper and lyricist intertwines the art of storytelling with ear clenching wordplay, bizarre punch lines and detailed poetry. ‘One to watch out for’ Akil the MC from Hiphops Legendary crew, Jurassic 5.

Ayanna Witter-Johnson. A singer, songwriter and cellist who easily demonstrates that classical and contemporary music can successfully co-exist. From recording with Akala to composing for the London Symphony Orchestra her striking vocals, live reinterpretation and unique cello playing style are both enchanting and mesmerising.
