Soweto Kinch is a multi award-winning saxophonist, MC and composer specialising in a trademark style of Jazz, Rap and Spoken Word unlike that of any other performer in the world. Revered among both musicians and rappers alike, Soweto has amassed an unprecedented array of accolades including two MOBO awards, two Urban Music Awards, BBC Rising Star Award, BBC Best Jazz Instrumentalist, BBC Best Jazz Band, Montreux Jazz Festival Award, Peter Whittingham Award for Jazz innovation, Winner of the White Foundation World Sax Competition and a nomination for the much coveted Mercury Award as well as his own weekly BBC radio show.

Growing up with a playwright for a father and an actress for a mother, performance has always been in Soweto's blood and has over the years become an ambassador of urban culture as well as a British jazz institution with achievements ranging from the curation of several large international festivals to the production and scoring of various highly acclaimed music-based theatrical works to starring in a reality show series which followed him and other musical figureheads like Goldie and Ms Dynamite as they each mentored and coached 12 vulnerable youths ahead of their live performance before HM Prince Harry at Buckingham Palace. Soweto Kinch is currently touring in trio format with saxophone/vocals, drums and bass - Expect scalding hot, hard bop grooves mixed with racing freestyle lyrics in his hell raising live shows.
