@Tomorrow'sWarriors @BricklaneJazzFest Day 3

The third day of Tomorrow's Warriors' takeover at Brick Lane Jazz Festival was a testament to the incredible scope and impact of the Warriors' work, a work that we are all proud to support.

We started with an amazing performance by TW youngest ensemble, the Junior Band, who opened what rapidly became an oversubscribed Jam. Kids came from all corners with their instruments to have their chance to play on stage.

Kikimiki, a new band led by vocalist, composer and flute player Keira Chakraborty, showcased a set of original music nurtured at the spirit level down at the Southbank, the home of the TW educational program. Warriors do this; they give you the tools to learn the Jazz language and start finding your own voice.

The third band on stage is part of the cross-border work being done at Tomorrow's Warriors. It is opening International doors for Emerging artists because the UK is way too small to hold all the talent being developed. BXL x LDN Interplay is a band born out of a partnership with Brosella Festival in Belgium, which brings together musicians from the UK and Belgium. The set was beyond all expectations, with excellent quality and chemistry on stage.

To finish the day and the whole festival on a high, we got to dance and enjoy Abeng.

Led by pianist Luke Bacchus, mixes Jazz with Caribbean influences.

The project shows us the true mission of jazz: to bring people and music from different cultures together in a language we can all feel and relate to.

I'm already excited about the 2024 edition of the Bricklane Jazz Festival.

Here are some photos from the day.
