About the Event
The only way an increase in female participation in Jazz is going to happen is by increasing their representation.
Gender in Jazz has been off balance for many years, is time to make a change.
Women don´t want to be patronised or accepted because of their gender but given the same opportunities to show their voices and values.
*Gender & diversity balance are priorities to Jazznewblood.
A traditional feature on our event is the unique photo exhibition held every year with a focus, this year,
on #femalejazzpower with photos from Patricia Pascal and Steve Funky Feet.
We also, welcome, DORA The Drawer, capturing the live action on her canvas.
(PREMIERE) ISOBELLA BURNHAM, is a vibrant 20-year-old Bassist, Vocalist and Songwriter from England. Growing up in Barbados she soaked up the rich musical culture around her and studied Jazz at the Barbados Community College. Isobella has played with Tomorrow’s Warriors at Love Supreme and PizzaExpress, with Banou Azania in Malawi and South Africa and for Connie Constance across the UK. This year she recorded with Tom Misch, Yussef Dayes, Jelly Cleaver, Leigh Phillips and Hank.
ASHA PARKINSON is a London-based composer and saxophonist whose work regularly crosses the boundaries between traditions. She was twice semi-finalist in the BBC Young Jazz Musician competition and was shortlisted in 2016 BBC Inspire Composers Competition. Additionally, she was one of 20 young people internationally to win Diana Legacy Award for her humanitarian initiative Voices Beyond Divisions. Asha’s compositional style brings together a wide range of influences, ranging from Arabic maqam, flamenco compas, Indian tala to the modal polyphony of the Notre Dame School and Olivier Messaien. She brings her project Kalpadruma to our showcase.
(PREMIERE) TARA CUNNINGHAM grew up listening to a variety of music from Talking Heads to Glenn Miller to Prince, drawing inspiration from these different styles in her own composition and improvisation. She attended the junior jazz course at the Royal Academy of Music before studying jazz guitar at Trinity Laban where she is currently in her third year. On the 24th she will be joined by Hugo Piper and Adam Merrell - expect a mix of atmospheric grooves and melodies representational of each musician’s distinctive sound.
