Nubya Garcia

London's vibrant jazz scene is ready for its crossover moment, and saxophonist Nubya Garcia is one of its most compelling stars, tearing through compositions that draw inspiration from Afrofuturism, grime, hip-hop and other genres that hovered around her club-kid youth. On the well-received scene-report comp We Out Here, the giddy "Once" shows off her fluid, yet urgent playing style as well as her on-a-dime bandleading skills. Her new EP, When We Are adds electronics to the mix. She'll perform at a showcase of British jazz sponsored by U.K. promoters Jazz Re:Freshed.
