Driven by a pulsing drumline, the Sons of Kemet’s energetic layers of saxophone and tuba create a brass band-like jazz experience. The group is based in the British jazz scene, but their music portrays a deeper exploration of African-Caribbean roots, while their name nods to Egyptian culture. Despite the dance-inducing and upbeat nature of their sound, they are also unafraid to tackle difficult societal themes through their music.
