Nubya Garcia

UK jazz is having a moment and saxophonist Nubya Garcia is undoubtedly one of the leading forces in this new wave of jazz acts taking the world by storm. Her When We Are EP is brilliant – delightfully soulful and groove-driven – and her shows are mesmerising. She’s been championed by the likes of Gilles Peterson, Jazz FM and Jazz re:freshed. Her thirst for creating brilliant music never seems to be quenched – alongside her solo work she has been a key component in a string of new and established groups. You can find her playing as part of the award-winning septet Nérija, Joe Armon-Jones’ Idiom, the Theon Cross Trio and Maisha as well as with Horace Andy and Congo Natty.
