Somerset House Summer Series 2017 - The Robert Glasper Experiment
When you’ve dominated the jazz charts and recorded with the likes of Mos Def, Q-Tip, Kanye West, Erykah Badu, Maxwell, Snoop Dogg and Kendrick Lamar, what’s next? The Robert Glasper Experiment continue defying expectations with their latest LP ArtScience, a vibrant, free flowing mix of jazz spliced with other genres.
Robert Glasper draws from jazz, hip-hop, R&B and rock, but refuses to be pinned down by any one tag, long keeping one foot planted firmly in jazz and the other in hip-hop and R&B. He's worked extensively with Q-Tip, playing keyboards on the rapper's 2008 album The Renaissance and co-wrote the single 'Life Is Better', which featured his label mate Norah Jones. Glasper also serves as the music director in Yasiin Bey's touring band, and has toured with the multi-platinum R&B singer Maxwell.

'Introducing singer, composer, multi-instrumentalist and native New Yorker Gabriel Garzón-Montano. Born to a Colombian father and a French mother, Gabriel spent his early years mastering the violin, guitar, and drums, before turning to the piano and bass guitar to better complete his compositions. By the time he graduated from Purchase College's Conservatory of Music, the foundations for his debut EP, Bishouné: Alma del Huila, were already laid. '
