Soweto Kinch

Oslo, Hackney

Tickets: £12.50 - 15.50

MOBO award winner, Mercury Prize nominee, and UK Jazz and Spoken Word titan returns…

Soweto Kinch is a multi award-winning saxophonist, MC and composer specialising in a trademark style of Jazz, Rap and Spoken Word unlike that of any other performer in the world. Revered among both jazz musicians and rappers alike, Soweto has amassed an unprecedented array of accolades including two MOBO awards, two Urban Music Awards, BBC Rising Star Award, BBC Best Jazz Instrumentalist, and a nomination for the much coveted Mercury Award.

After wowing the crowd at London’s Rich Mix in September, it’s easy to see why Kinch’s list of accolades is as long as one’s arm. A charismatic performer, Kinch is known for engaging with his audience via off-the-cuff Spoken Word and free styling in between bursts of outstanding sax. Upon Kinch’s return to Oslo, expect him to set the stage alight with red hot rhymes and scaldingly innovative jazz.

Unmissable for Jazz fanatics and Hip-Hop heads alike, Kinch’s unique blend of genres  pleases both purists and passing fans.

“Jazz and hip-hop are seamlessly blended without Kinch ever compromising either style” – Time Out

“Multi-talented saxophonist’s grooves get the crowd chanting” – The Guardian

“Contemporary and classic styles. It’s difficult to think of anyone currently able to produce a more convincing and engaging mix than Soweto Kinch” – BBC Music
