EFG London Jazz Festival starts today, and it’s back with a bang. Here at Rhythm Passport HQ we’ve been combing the programme to put together a playlist of all our favourite acts. And there are lots!
We’ll be seeing jazz from every corner of the globe, including Turkey, Nigeria, India, Chicago and New Orleans. But we’ll also be seeing the best of British jazz artists playing alongside some of the American greats. Be sure to listen to everything from Jyotsna Srikanth’s Indian virtuosic violin performance to the familiar faces of the UK jazz scene, SEED Ensemble, playing at this year’s Mercury Prize Awards.
Let’s get in the mood, and let the countdown begin!
