The new British jazz scene is in recent years the most invigorating current of contemporary jazz. It is thanks to her that the spirit of John Coltrane and Pharoah Sanders, African roots, spirituality and stylistic openness have returned. Nubya Garcia is one of the most important names of this scene, next to, among others Ezra Collective, Alfa Mist or saxophonist Shabaki Hutchings (Sons of Kemet).
The artist is the winner of the prestigious Breakthrough Act of the Year award given by the legendary London Jazz FM station. Her album "Nubya's 5ive" (Jazz Re: freshed), although it has been just over two years old has already become legendary, is one of the most sought-after jazz albums in the world! Her printout was sold out in a few weeks, as was the reissue, which appeared in response to the great market demand. The artist also has the EP "When We Are". You can hear it also on the special "We Out Here" recordings recorded by the representatives of the new British jazz scene. In addition to running his own band, Nubya supports Nerija, Maisha and Joe Armon-Jones. The artist is associated with the environment around Brownswood Records and Gilles Peterson, one of the most famous music journalists and jazz promoters in the world.
