"Maisha” concert, part of "BAM - Barcelona Acció Musical"

Maisha (UK; Afro jazz)

When Jake Long, the drummer and bandleader of this London sextet, was looking for a name for his spiritual Afro jazz band, as they described themselves, he went for the word that meant 'life' in Swahili. As an ensemble that combines sax, flute, guitar, double bass, keyboards and percussion, in addition to drums, Maisha perform original compositions inspired from the works of Alice Coltrane, Pharoah Sanders and Idris Mohammad, enriched with Afrobeat rhythms, as if these heroes of spiritual jazz had been taken on a journey through West Africa. Following their debut with the EP Welcome to a New Welcome (2016), recorded live in London and a testimony to the energy this young sextet radiate live, Maisha are working on what will be their first album.
