Shabaka & The Ancestors

Shabaka & The Ancestors

Curated by James Holden

At last year's Le Guess Who?, British jazz stalwart Shabaka Hutchings performed with free jazz futurists The Comet Is Coming. This time around, Hutchings seeks out ghosts of the past with his South African brethren, The Ancestors, who are spearheaded by trumpet virtuoso Mandla Mlangeni. Together they usher the music into uncharted pathways of spiritual jazz, with Hutchings’ supple playing floating over Mlangeni's dynamic brass outbursts.
