Award-winning saxophonist, MC and composer Soweto Kinch brings his unique, uncompromising, world-famous jazz/hip-hop fusion to Rich Mix London

Revered among both musicians and rappers alike, Soweto has amassed an unprecedented array of accolades including two MOBO awards, two Urban Music Awards, BBC Rising Star Award, BBC Best Jazz Instrumentalist, BBC Best Jazz Band, Montreux Jazz Festival Award, Peter Whittingham Award for Jazz innovation, Winner of the White Foundation World Sax competition and a nomination for the much coveted Mercury Award. He now hosts his very own weekly BBC radio show ‘Jazz Planet’.

Growing up with a playwright for a father and an actress for a mother, performance has always been in Soweto’s blood and has over the years become an ambassador of urban culture as well as a British jazz institution. His myriad achievements range from the curating several large international festivals to producing and scoring of various highly acclaimed theatrical works to starring to coaching young talent on BBC documentary Goldie’s Band: By Royal Appointment alongside the man himself, Guy Chambers and Ms Dynamite.

To take this night to another level we have added Jonzi D as support act,

A dancer, spoken word artist and director, he is the foremost advocate for hip-hop theatre who has changed the profile and influenced the development of the UK British hip-hop dance and theatre scene over the last two decades.

He has been actively involved in British hip-hop culture, rapping and bboying since its genesis. Since graduating from the London Contemporary Dance School, Jonzi has been committed to the development of Hip-hop theatre, performing and creating dance theatre pieces around the world.
