Ezra Collective

As a part of the 28th Akbank Jazz Festival's program we will be hosting Ezra Collective!

Blending afrobeat, reggae, jazz and hip-hop with a distinctly London spirit, Ezra Collective brings an almost surreal feeling to their music. A product of the London’s essential cultural pluralism and ever-shifting musical zeitgeist, this marvellous five-piece band combines the surrounding inspiration with their strong intentiveness. Emerged onto the scene in 2012, winning the Yamaha Jazz Experience Competition, Ezra Collective has since played on numerous stages around London and beyond, including the Royal Albert Hall. Also benefiting from London’s vast environment of online music broadcast opportunities they have become the pioneers of the new-wave of UK jazz music. As being one of the most exciting guests of Akbank Jazz Festival this year, the strength of their partnership will shine in Istanbul!
