With Ruby Rushton + Emma-Jean Thackray's Walrus
Starting off the new year in style, Red Bull Music Academy brings two of the finest outfits within London’s burgeoning jazz scene to Omeara for an exciting live showcase of worldwide beats.
Leading the night are Ruby Rushton: an exciting jazz quartet led by 22a founder, Tenderlonious and one of the lead stalwarts of the new-age jazz generation to emerge in the UK. Fresh off the back of a ‘Worldwide Awards – Jazz Album of the Year’ nomination for Trudi’s Songbook Volume Two on 22a, Ruby Rushton are no strangers to success in pushing musical boundaries, so expect to hear an eclectic mix of jazz blends, afro-beat and electronic sounds.
Also performing on the night is award-winning musician and RBMA alumni, Emma-Jean Thackray, who will be bringing WALRUS – her experimental jazz band straight out of South London. WALRUS will bring a unique fusion of brass, beats and vocals ready to smooth up the dancefloor, so look forward to a showcase of the new and expressive sounds encapsulating the UK jazz scene.
