Join special guests to celebrate a new wave of London jazz-inspired musicians

Counterpoint celebrates a new wave of London jazz-inspired musicians who are on the rise worldwide. This monthly night sees musicians applying their improv skills to their record collections, with selected pairings playing back to back each night.

Musical grounding is provided at each event by Musicá Macondo featuring Tim Garcia, Tej Adeleye, Amrisha Prashar (IAMRISHA), Marina GB and Mr Redley.

Each event will also celebrate some of the visual artists connected to this upsurge of diaspora-centred talent. Lewis Heriz, Raimund Wong, Ben Connors and the collective behind the very excellent Plantain Papers will be showing and selling their work.

The event has been put together by writer and broadcaster Emma Warren:

It’s an honour to be around in the early days of a cultural movement, and I’ve been lucky enough to be around a few. This means I always recognise it when it’s happening... These new generation musicians play at an incredible level. They grew up in producer culture and they get the dance. It’s creating something new. Now we'll get to see what happens when they go b2b playing records.
