Sons of Kemet is the brainchild of young reeds player and Radio 3 New Generation Artist Shabaka Hutchings, whose ambition for this ensemble was to assemble the most unlikely of line-ups and allow them free rein for their distinct musical personalities to shine through.
The resultant music is loud, earthy, vital, and refreshingly rough-edged at times but surprisingly danceable; the two drummers spur off each others’ energies and the tuba occupies a variety of roles from breathless walking bass to subtle, overdubbed layers of sound. Shabaka’s plaintive tone and uncluttered compositions frame the sound. Shabaka Hutchings on clarinet and tenor saxophone. Oren Marshall on tuba and electronics. Seb Rochford and Tom Skinner on drums.
