Nubiyan Twist / + Ayanna Witter-Johnson + Nimbus Sextet
Mon 27 September 2021
"The type of record that should be blasted over a sun-drenched festival crowd.”
“Nubiyan Twist take a leap out of the densely packed crowd of UK jazz with Freedom Fables, a summation of the group's talent that sees them elevated into the highest tier of their cohort.”
Loud And Quiet 8/10
“A cauldron of energy that bubbles with invention. Exhilarating stuff.”
"A free-flowing assemblage of jazz, soul, hip hop and diasporic styles."
"If I Know sparks with Afrobeat and highlife rhythms… 6 minutes of gold.”
"If I Know…the perfect track to vibe around your makeshift living room dancefloor with a homemade margarita."
"A melting pot of soul, jazz and afro-groove with incomparable
musicality, Freedom Fables will undoubtedly boost Nubiyan Twist and
consolidate its position as one of the best British soul collectives of
the current generation" Pan African Music Leeds is generous in terms of
music. Proof here in this collective that marries Afro-jazz and
Rolling Stone, France.
