Sons of Kemet at Safaricom Jazz International Festival

Award winning band, Sons of Kemet gave two electrifying performances and led two masterclasses while in Nairobi.

In February 2016, the British Council Kenya worked with MOBO award-winners Sons of Kemet.

Led by saxophonist, clarinettist, composer and ‘BBC New Generation Artist’ Shabaka Hutchings, Sons of Kemet features four of the UK jazz scene’s brightest stars, who create a revolutionary mix of music that spans jazz, rock, dub and Caribbean folk.
