Skin Deep, together with Shabaka Hutchings, curate an evening of conversation, live performance and collective listening of Shabaka’s work, old and new.

A saxophonist, band leader and composer, Shabaka Hutchings is one of the stars of London’s younger jazz community, as well as the city’s thriving improvised music scene.

As part of the Caribbean diaspora, he pushes the boundaries of what musical elements are considered to be Caribbean. Constantly evaluating the nature of his relationship with musical material and tradition, he describes his attempts at composition as wrestling matches with questions of where and how the Caribbean can be encoded, and what happens when it is exposed to the western classical music cannon.

Featuring specials guests Theon Cross (Theon Cross Trio, Sons of Kemet) and Max Hallett (Comet is Coming) this will be our 4th Sonic Transmissions in a series of exploratory live public listening sessions with musicians, DJs, artists and music makers. Navigating identity, politics, music and style, each session offers an alternative way to experience music and sound.
