Jasmine Myra

After a sold out show at St Pancras Old Church Gondwana Records and Soundcrash Music are delighted to welcome you to another concert with Jasmine Myra.

Jasmine Myra is a saxophonist, composer and band leader, based in Leeds. Part of the bustling, creative, cross-genre music scene in the city she has surrounded herself with some of the best young talent in the north of England. Her original instrumental music has a euphoric and uplifting sound, influenced by artists as diverse as Bonobo, Olafur Arnalds and Kenny Wheeler, artists whose music shares an emotive quality that you can also hear in Myra’s own compositions.

Jasmine Myra (alto sax), Matt Cliffe (flute and alto sax), Rianna Henrique (flute and tenor sax), Jasper Green (piano), Ben Haskins (guitar), Sam Quintana (double bass), Rachel Horton Kitchlew (harp) and George Hall (drums).
