Kamasi Washington, born and raised in Los Angeles, is a versatile multi-instrumentalist, composer, and bandleader. His unique blend of traditional jazz with funk, soul, and hip-hop results in a recognizable and innovative sound. In 2015, he released his groundbreaking debut album ‘The Epic’, which immediately garnered praise in the contemporary jazz scene. That same year, he also made a significant contribution to Kendrick Lamar’s album ‘To Pimp a Butterfly’, further solidifying his influence not only within the jazz but also within the hip-hop scene.

Since then, he has built an impressive body of work, with albums such as ‘Heaven and Earth’ and ‘The Harmony of Difference’. In 2020, he earned praise and recognition for his compositions for Michelle Obama’s documentary ‘Becoming’, earning him Emmy and Grammy nominations. In the same year, Dinner Party was formed, a collaboration between four renowned musicians: Kamasi Washington, Terrace Martin, Robert Glasper, and 9th Wonder. They released an EP that was praised for its progressive approach to music-making and was nominated for a Grammy Award in the Best Progressive R&B Album category.

On May 3, his new album ‘Fearless Movement’ will be released, inspired by dance and the birth of his first daughter. With his eponymous tour, he will visit Paradiso on November 10.
