Nubya Garcia

​Saxophonist and composer Nubya Garcia (UK) is one of the leading forces of the resurgent London jazz scene. Raised in a musical Caribbean family, her brand of Afro-tinged jazz has made her a key component in a string of new and established groups.

With her first solo project, Nubya 5ive, she wants to explore the common ground between progressive jazz and hip-hop.

​Nubya Garcia & band draw from hip-hop and backbeat influences as well as the futuristic sounds of iconic composers and musicians Sun-Ra, Fela Kuti and Pharoah Sanders.
