THIS EVENT TOOK PLACE IN 2010 Soweto Kinch, saxophone Graham Godfrey, drums Femi Temowo, guitar Karl Rasheed-Abel, bass A MOBO award-winner and Mercury Prize nominee, Soweto Kinch premieres his latest project and CD The New Emancipation, which draws inspiration from 19th-century work songs and early blues, exploring the modern resonances of an essential history. From debt/wage slavery, to creative oppression in the music industry and ideas of race in a post-Obama age it combines this rich musical inheritance and revisits it with a stellar jazz ensemble and hip-hop production. Citing influences as divergent as Duke Ellington, Madlib and Frederick Delius, it plants the power and significance of the blues firmly with modern realities.
