Sons Of Kemet Nominated For 2018 Mercury Prize!
July 26th, 2018

Filling the Mercury prize’s notorious jazz slot are Sons of Kemet for Your Queen is a Reptile, their first nomination. “It’s great to know that our music and our ideas will have the chance to resonate with as wide an audience as the Mercury nominations permits,” said Sons of Kemet leader Shabaka Hutchings. “Our aim is to merge the music and ways of perception associated with histories of the Afro-Caribbean diaspora to the developments happening within the London music scene and propel the results outwards to the world as a force for good.”

You can catch Sons Of Kemet at Hare & Hounds this October as part of Leftfoot & THSH Jazzlines’ UK Jazz season. Tickets available here
