Birthed from deep within London’s jazz resurgence, sonic explorers Native Dancer will perform a bespoke show dedicated to one of their biggest influences; revolutionary jazz fusion outfit Weather Report.

 

Veering from avant-garde to more funk and r&b sounds and then to world music, no genre was too far removed from jazz for Weather Report. With a star studded line up that over the years included Joe Zawinul, Wayne Shorter, Jaco Pastorius and Airto Moreira, they outlasted their contemporaries the Mahavishnu Orchestra, Return to Forever, and Headhunters.

 

Native Dancer's own sound universe trades in a similar stock, fusing the boundaries of acoustic instruments, synthesizers and samples with elements of pop, soul, funk, jazz and rock. We can't wait to hear them interpret some of the 20th century's most beloved jazz standards.

    Native Dancer

    Soul Jazz

    Native Dancer was formed in 2014. Born out of late night jam sessions, listening parties in an east London studio, conversations about boundary dissolution and a wealth of experience gigging on the London jazz scene and with some of the most interesting creative artists the UK has produced.

    Drawing on elements from their collective experience, Native Dancer have created a sound that weaves together influences from hip-hop, trip-hop, jazz, R & B and electronic pop. As individual artists the band has performed and recorded with an array of UK talent including Lianne La Havas, The Cinematic Orchestra, Joss Stone, Squarepusher, Mathew Herbert, The Invisible and ESKA.

    Since it’s inception in 2014, Native Dancer has released 2 EP’s to critical acclaim garnering loyal fans of their music all over the world. In April 2016, EP Vol.II was released by Japanese label Inpartmaint.

    Afropunk described it as: 

    “A refreshing burst of imagination, uniqueness, and purpose in a crowded electro-fusion landscape.” AFROPUNK 2016
