The ten-person jazz orchestra was founded at the beginning of 2016 in London by composer, arranger and saxophonist Cassie Kinoshi. The group leader has already earned a strong position on the British jazz scene. She co-created the female septet Nerija and the afro-jazz group Korokoko, among other projects. SEED Ensemble combines urban London inspirations with the sounds of West Africa and the Caribbean. The list of band members includes tuba player Theon Cross from Sons of Kemet. SEED Ensemble‘s debut album, “Driftglass”, was released at the beginning of 2019 and enthusiastically received by both critics and audiences.
