Sons of Kemet
Sons of Kemet

Sons Of Kemet is the iconoclastic mix of tenor sax, tuba and double drums. Led by saxophonist Shabaka Hutchings, the MOBO award-winning Sons Of Kemet features Theon Cross on tuba and both Tom Skinner (Hello Skinny, The Smile) and Edward Wakili-Hick (Roots Manuva, Gilad Atzmon) on drums. Hypnotic double drum rhythms frame the colourful interplay of saxophone and tuba as the original compositions are brought to life by four fiercely creative musicians. Signed to the iconic Impulse! Label, The Mercury Prize nominated album ‘Your Queen is a Reptile’ was released in 2018, and was followed by their fourth studio album in 2021, the historic ‘Black to the Future’. They bring a genre defying approach, which celebrates the restless exploration of identity within the Caribbean diaspora within the U.K. Sons Of Kemet record in London with a host of guests spanning the breadth of the UK scene including jungle legend Congo Natty, poet Joshua Idehen, Grime MC D Double E and sensational Lianne La Havas amongst others.
