A rising star from the exciting London jazz movement, saxophonist, composer and bandleader Nubya Garcia performs from her energetic, successful debut album, SOURCE.

Nubya’s hypnotic, freeflow jazz takes its influences from across the Caribbean and Latin America, drawing deeply from her family’s roots. Dub reggae, cumbia, afrobeat and neo-soul can all clearly be heard alongside more traditional jazz rhythms.

Her debut album SOURCE is a dynamic and exploratory collection that has positioned her as one of the most exciting artists in the UK. Garcia had gained critical acclaim ahead of her solo release with her collectives Maisha and Nérija, and through frequent collaborations with prominent jazz musicians from the UK and abroad.

Please note: All live stream events are subject to change. Not all events listed are live performances by the artist - they also include archived concerts, DJ sets, masterclasses, Q&As and more.

London-based saxophonist and composer, Nubya Garcia, is one of the leading forces behind the resurgence of jazz-influenced sounds in the UK. Raised in a creative environment built by a set of Caribbean parents, her brand of afro-tinged jazz has made her a key component in a string of new and established groups: from work with MOBO Award-winning drummer, Moses Boyd, legendary jungle producer and toaster, Congo Natty, through to her own works as part of six-piece, Maisha, and the Nérija septet.
