Storey's Field Centre, Eddington, Cambridge (Just off Huntingdon Road)
Cambridge Jazz Festival presents:
Come and celebrate the Closing Night of the Festival with The Black Voices Quintet who will curate and perform the greatest and most powerful numbers from the repertoire of one of the 20th century’s most seminal artists; Nina Simone.
“Nina Simone is an artist whose uncompromising stance for social inclusion could not be more relevant in today’s climate. Black Voices had the honour of supporting her in concert many times- This show will allow us to explore and celebrate her great legacy in a totally new way” – Black Voices Quintet
Founded by a group of musicians and scholars in 1987 with the mission statement to preserve black oral music traditions, Black Voices Quintet have performed to Nelson Mandela at Royal Albert Hall and played alongside Nina Simone herself, as well as Miriam Makeba, Ray Charles and Hugh Masekela.
