7:00 PM — 10:00 PM

Two of the most excit­ing and dis­tinct col­lect­ives on the Jazz scene are head­ing to Moth Club for a massive co-head­line show for this year’s EFG Lon­don Jazz Fest­ival! Both Kefaya and Kinka­jous have become renowned for their eclectic and diverse cre­ations, fus­ing Jazz with their respect­ive cul­tur­al and music­al influ­ences.

Kefaya are an award win­ning music­al col­lect­ive led by UK-based musi­cians and pro­du­cers Giuli­ano Mod­arel­li and Al Mac­Sween. An eclectic  group of immig­rants, trav­el­lers and inter­na­tion­al artists, Kefaya seek to find com­mon ground between glob­al folk tra­di­tions with a cut­ting-edge sound rooted firmly in the 21st cen­tury. Since win­ning Best New­comer at Songlines Music Awards 2017, Kefaya have been gain­ing a repu­ta­tion for their vir­tu­osic and mes­mer­ising live shows, per­form­ing across Europe and India with a mod­u­lar line-up ran­ging from a trio to a nine-piece ensemble.

Co-head­lining this unmiss­able night will be Kinka­jous a Lon­don based quin­tet who con­jure a pas­sion­ate, intro­spect­ive and power­ful sound, that draws from their shared love for jazz and elec­tron­ica. Led by saxophonist/clarinetist Adrien Cau and drummer/producer Ben­oît Par­men­ti­er, their influ­ences range from Fly­ing LotusBonoboPor­tico Quar­tet and Snarky Puppy. With a debut album drop­ping soon, this band are def­in­itely one to watch.

Their tracks blend whirl­ing synths with warm sax­o­phones and a per­cuss­ive fusion of real drums and elec­tron­ic samples. The res­ult is a form of ambi­ent, elec­tron­ic Jazz akin to that of Float­ing Points and many of Gond­wana Records’ affil­i­ates. How­ever, the idio­syn­crat­ic instru­ment­al timbres and evoc­at­ive melodic lines evid­ent in the works of Kinka­jous, set them apart as one of the most dis­tinct and intriguing Jazz col­lect­ives around.

This is a rare oppor­tun­ity to wit­ness first-hand the ever-diver­si­fy­ing para­met­ers of Jazz in the mod­ern era. As Kefaya push these para­met­ers with polit­ic­al sen­ti­ment and Middle-East­ern melod­ies, Kinka­jous push them in a dif­fer­ent dir­ec­tion with their syn­thes­isers and elec­tron­ic pro­duc­tion. This one is going to be spe­cial. Get your tick­ets now.
