Lucky enough to be able to try many different instruments while growing up she eventually discovered the saxophone and jazz at 14. In her compositions, you can hear the influence of Brazilian and Latin music, Kenny Wheeler's more traditional jazz sounds, ranging from Cannonball Adderley to Thelonious Monk.

Dancer and violinist Saskia Horton is known both for her classically-trained musical skills and her prowess in the art of ‘krumping’ – a super high energy dance form that originated in the US. In fact, her moves are so impressive that singer FKA Twigs handpicked her to star in a film she directed. But this amazing multidisciplinary artist is also part for the jazz fusion band Nihilism rated as one of the most original young bands performing in the underground London music scene. We are excited to present her set of original music that am sure will include a diverse range of artistic expression.
