In recent years, this talented tenor saxophonist from California has attracted attention in other connections than his starting point, jazz music. As a part of the new musical wave from the American west coast where jazz is mixed with all types of music, Kamasi has already reached an audience far beyond his native country. Among other things, he has collaborated with celebrities such as Kendrick Lamar, Thundercat, Snoop Dogg, Flying Lotus and Ryan Adams. Kamasi Washington’s signing with the trend-setting record company XL Recordings (Adele, The XX, King Krule, Radiohead) further shows his intentions to work in a non-traditional way and this has already resulted in a lot of new enthusiastic fans. Kamasi Washington’s next album will be released in 2018.
Kamasi Washington will perform on Friday, 10. August 2018.
