Samora Pinderhughes joins forces with Marquis Hill

Samora Pinderhughes’ presence in November is already one of our favourite experiences of this year’s festival. His boundless creativity and intersectional, intellectual approach to music and beyond is something we are happy to enjoy live.

Earlier this week, Samora announced that he is supported by the equally talented Elliott Skinner (guitar/vox) and Joshua Crumbley (bass). With them by his side he will translate his multi-dimensional exhibition of grief, healing and the structural violence imposed on marginalised communities – and people in general – to the Super-Sonic Jazz stage. Check out the imaginative NPR set below, filmed inside his exhibition to get an idea of his genius.

As of today, Samora Pinderhughes can be heard on a new song by trumpeter Marquis Hill, who played a pivotal part when the careers of Makaya McCraven, Joel Ross and Braxton Cook catapulted. “Black Alchemy/Hall Of Mirrors” is a transcendental, almost militant piece of jazz that keeps evolving into more beauty during its 6-minute course.
