Camilla George- Mobo-Nominated, Nigerian born Saxophonist and star of the award winning group “Jazz Jamaica,” lead her own critically acclaimed project showcasing the stars of the new UK jazz scene. Dubbed “The Golden Girl of Jazz” by the Evening Standard. Camilla’s Debut album, ‘Isang’ (pronounced E-SANG which means Journey in Ibibio her native language) received huge critical acclaim. Her follow up album, “The People Could Fly” is a scorcher featuring special guest Omar as well as in demand guitarist of the moment, Shirley Tetteh. As Dee Dee Bridgewater exclaimed, “The world is safe, because we have Camilla.”
Camilla’s love of fusing African and Western Music to make her own unique style is a key reason why she is a firm fixture on the new London Jazz scene alongside peers such as Nubya Garcia, Shabaka Hutchings and Zara McFarlane. Her music is a hypnotizing blend of Afrofuturism, hip hop and jazz. Camilla’s music is politically minded and heavily linked with African history and in particular slavery. Her latest album looks at tales that slaves passed onto their children through generations and whilst full of sorrow, is essentially a story of hope for black people and mankind that we can one day live together in harmony.
