Sons of Kemet featured on Gap advert
Former MOBO Best Jazz Act winners Sons of Kemet, currently have their song ‘Inner Babylon’ (from the album Burn) featured on the new Gap Clothing advert which is being shown in cinemas, on TV and online.
Sons of Kemet began life in the spring of 2011 when patrons of Charlie Wright’s in East London saw a performance that stopped them in their tracks. It was the unveiling of a group with a unique take on jazz, Caribbean folk music and African Diasporan history. Sons of Kemet are a super-group of sorts led by clarinetist, saxophonist and composer Shabaka Hutchings, featuring Oren Marshall on tuba and both Tom Skinner and Seb Rochford on drums. The combination of these mighty creative forces yields music that is powerful, lyrical and, above all, fiercely original.
