Preview: Maisha at Peggy's Skylight

20 May 19 words: Ashley Carter

The London spiritual jazz collective are headed to Nottingham this month...

Touring on the back of their recent acclaimed debut album There Is A Place, ever-evolving music collective Maisha, led by drummer Jake Long, will bring their fresh slant to the spiritual jazz tradition to Peggy's Skylight on Wednesday 22 May.

 Whilst channelling jazz titans like Don Cherry and Pharoah Sanders, Maisha also imbue the music with their own individual influences including hypnotic West African rhythms and Afrobeat. The result is a brilliant, often heady mix that combines the spiritual of Alice Coltrane with the swing of Fela Kuti and the greatness of Kamasi Washington and Sun Ra. Expect an unmissable evening of shape-shifting, beguiling and intensely rhythmic music that firmly places Maisha at the forefront of modern British jazz.
