Soweto Kinch

Alto-saxophonist and MC Soweto Kinch blends jazz and hip-hop like no other. His saxophone award at the Montreux Jazz Festival in 2003 was the first of many (BBC Jazz Award, MOBO Award, Mercury Prize etc). With a degree in Modern History from Oxford University, the Briton brings an erudite and committed perspective to issues such as slavery, racial conflict and police violence in his lyrics and concept albums. Soweto recently performed his latest album The Black Peril with the London Symphony Orchestra.
