LEEDS-born, London-based ten-piece Nubiyan Twist bring their unique blend of jazz, hip hop, afrobeat, Latin, soul, reggae and dance music to Birkenhead’s Future Yard on Saturday, October 2.

The band released their album Freedom Fables on Strut Records on March 12, the follow-up to the acclaimed Jungle Run of Spring 2019.

The band’s leader Tom Excell said: “Freedom Fables reflects on the power of narratives. Each vocalist on this, record explores their own memoirs, a freedom of expression underpinning our belief that music is the ultimate narrative for unity.

“The record references a lot of music that we all loved during our formative years; you can hear touches of broken beat, blunted hip hop, highlife, Latin, jazz and UK soul running through the tracks.”

Since their debut’s release, they have amassed an army of high-profile fans including Mary Ann Hobbs, Gilles Peterson, Huey Morgan, David Rodigan, Craig Charles and David Byrne.

Support comes from Mobo-nominated Ayanna Witter-Johnson.
