Shabaka will explore the Japanese shakuhachi and other wooden flutes, while Otto specialises in combining instruments from the recorder family with electronic sounds

If UK jazz has never sounded so relevant and vibrant, part of the scene's success is down to saxophonist Shabaka Hutchings, an artist that likes to think outside the box. Ongoing projects include Sons of Kemet and The Comet is Coming as well as his own Shabaka and The Ancestors, leading to awards such as MOBO Jazz Act of the Year and a Mercury Music Prize nomination.

Shabaka will be exploring the Japanese shakuhachi alongside various other wooden flutes he's been collecting throughout his world travels expressing the rhythms and melodic patterns that form the foundations of his musical conception.

Multi-instrumentalist Otto Hashmi specialises in instruments from the recorder family, combining their tones with electronic sounds. He is previewing forthcoming EP Music for the End Times in a set re-imagined for All Saints Church.


Otto Hashmi will also be performing at All Saints earlier in the day as part of early music group Londinium Consort. Learn more and book here.

The Steinway concert piano chosen and hired by Brighton Festival for this performance is supplied and maintained by Steinway & Sons, London
