We had a great time performing at the London Jazz Festival on 16th November. It was an honour to open the event in the Southbank Centre’s Friday Tonic slot. We had 70 young musicians and dancers all led by our team who have grown up through Bloco and now take a lead creatively. Sheila Maurice-Grey led the whole show with Mark Kavuma supporting the brass, Marlon Hibbert leading Steel Pans, Arlowe Edwards leading the dancers, and Keiran Pearson and the ever ‘young’ Shayanna Dyer-Harris leading the drums!

We had a great response from the audience, Serious and the Southbank Centre who all loved the show. And the young people smashed it!
