Join Luke Bacchus' band for a performance celebrating the immense musical heritage of the Windrush Generation.

Line-up: Luke Bacchus (piano), Marlon Hibbert (steel pans), Nate Ricketts (drums), Menelik Claffey (double bass)

This year marks the 75th Anniversary of the first arrivals from the Caribbean on the Windrush. The distinctive sound of steel pans is a key musical ingredient in this jazz quartet's 'Windrush Celebration' gig.

BBC Young Jazz Musician 2022 finalist, Luke Bacchus is one of the most exciting emerging jazz musicians on the UK scene. Born and raised in London to Guyanese parents, Bacchus musically explores his Caribbean heritage as one of his major sources of inspiration.

Luke has a distinct sound, pairing entrancing rhythms from the Caribbean with jazz harmonies in his original compositions, as well as a unique approach to playing standards.

Initially teaching himself jazz piano from YouTube videos, Luke went on to study at Trinity Laban Conservatoire, London. Musical influences include Herbie Hancock, McCoy Tyner and Thelonious Monk.
