‘If you’re not moving to Maisha’s music, you may want to check your pulse ‘ Jazzwise Magazine

Touring on the back of their acclaimed debut album There Is A Place, ever-evolving music collective Maisha, led by drummer Jake Long, bring a fresh slant to the spiritual jazz tradition. While channelling jazz titans like Don Cherry and Pharoah Sanders, they also imbue the music with their own individual influences including hypnotic West African rhythms and Afrobeat. The result is a brilliant, often heady mix that combines the spiritual of Alice Coltrane with the swing of Fela Kuti and the greatness of Kamasi Washington and Sun Ra. Expect an unmissable evening of shape-shifting, beguiling and intensely rhythmic music that firmly places Maisha at the forefront of modern British Jazz.
