Event: Let Freedom Ring @ Rich Mix – 23rd January

Stirring contemporary jazz with gospel, blues and Afro-Cuban music from Mercury/MOBO award-winning saxophonist Denys Baptiste. It’s inspired by the spirit and rhythms of Dr Martin Luther King’s momentous ‘I Have A Dream’ speech on its 40th anniversary, and features an explosive 11-piece international line-up including Abram Wilson, Omar Puente and Gary Crosby

VJs from acclaimed film-makers Yeast join the band to present a creative live mix of footage of the musicians’ performance on stage, the text of Ben Okri’s poem, and powerful images of the struggle for freedom, equality and justice by oppressed peoples throughout the international community. An incredibly moving experience, the music and visuals act as powerful reminders of why the quest for freedom and civil rights must continue.
