SEED Ensemble & Guests: Celebrating the music of Pharoah Sanders

8:00 pm - 10:00 pm | 14 November 2020
Barbican Centre | £12.50 - £20

Celebrating the life and work of Pharoah Sanders and Cassie Kinoshi, SEED Ensemble perform from his much-revered songbook, live streamed as part of Barbican’s EFG London Jazz Festival.2020.

This October we celebrate spiritual jazz icon Pharoah Sanders’ 80th birthday. Cassie Kinoshi leads the SEED Ensemble in tribute, with special guests to be announced.

A vital part of London’s thriving jazz scene, SEED Ensemble is a Mercury Award nominated ten-piece band, led by alto saxophonist and composer Cassie Kinoshi.

Their style comes from the bustle of the city alongside the West African and Caribbean influences of Kinoshi’s heritage, exploring a blend of genres through original compositions and improvisation: a truly Black British sound.

The band’s line-up features some of London’s most exciting and innovative young jazz musicians including trumpeter Sheila-Maurice-Grey (Kokoroko) and guitarist Shirley Tetteh (Maisha).

Ticket Options

We’ll be welcoming a limited audience back into the Hall for these autumn concerts (subject to government guidelines).

Buying your ticket

Tickets for the live performance in the Hall are £20.

Tickets are available as single tickets or in groups of twos, threes and fours. In line with government advice for seated venues, audience members can only sit together in groups of up to two households.

If government guidance changes and we’re unable to have a live audience in the Hall, we’ll convert your ticket into a live broadcast ticket so you can watch the show at home – we’ll refund the price difference.

On the night

We’re working hard to make this a high quality experience for everyone, whether you’re with us live in the Hall or watching from home. Due to the technical requirements of streaming a live performance, if you’re in the Hall you might notice cameras and operators are visible, and staging, lighting and sound levels might change.

To give you some more information about the performance, we’ll send you a digital programme the day before the concert.

This performance is created for watching live from home. We can’t wait to share these new performances with you and bring the Barbican into your homes live for the first time.

A ticket to watch the live broadcast costs £12.50.

We advise you to watch the performance live, but the stream will be available to watch back for 48 hours after the live broadcast.

The live broadcast will start at 8pm and you’ll receive instructions via email the day before the event, telling you how to access the stream.
