Maisha’s energetic show has been lighting up parties and jazz clubs all over London for the last year. Taking inspiration from Pharoah Sanders, Alice Coltrane and Idris Mohammad, the band fuse their jazz influences with West African and Afro-beat rhythms, courtesy of bandleader Jake Long (2016 Yamaha Jazz Scholar) and percussionist Tim Doyle. Twm Dylan keeps the groove alive on double bass, Shirley Tetteh kills it on rhythm and lead guitar and Sarah Tandy brings the heat on keys.
The band were recently featured on Brownswood Recordings’ We Out Here with other members of London’s burning jazz scene such as Ezra Collective, Moses Boyd and Shabaka Hutchings.
Having supported legendary artists such as Sun Ra Arkestra and Natalie ‘Floacist’ Stewart (Floetry), Maisha have proved they are a live act not to be missed.
