Colectiva is a nine-piece ensemble exploring the spaces between Afro-Latin music and jazz while reflecting on themes of sisterhood and female empowerment.
Rooted in the sounds of Africa, Latin America and the diaspora, the group’s thoughtful and punchy arrangements are affectionately dubbed ‘jazz tropicaliente’ (hot-tropical-jazz). Released in collaboration with pianist Maria Grapsa, the group’s debut single ‘Under The’ on Movimientos captures the essence of their shared creative practice and has received support from the likes of Huey Morgan and Jamz Supernova on BBC Radio 6 Music, Jazz FM’s Chris Philips and Tim Garcia, and Toshiro Matsuura and Papaoul on Worldwide FM.
Winners of the UK Latin Awards ‘Best Alternative Act 2019’, Colectiva are set to step into their power in 2021, with two more singles planned, infused with the spirit of feminist activism.
Tickets £12 per person – Music from 7:30pm
