Performance SATURDAY - Colectiva

Exploring boundaries between Afro-Latin music and Jazz, Collectiva are a unique voice on the UK scene, representing the meeting of two musical worlds they believe belong together.

Rooted in the sounds of Africa, Latin America and the diaspora, the group’s thoughtful and punchy arrangements are affectionately dubbed ‘jazz tropicaliente’ (hot tropical jazz). Released in collaboration with pianist Maria Grapsa, the group’s debut single ‘Under The’ on Movimientos captures the essence of their shared creative practice and has received support from the likes of Huey Morgan and Jamz Supernova on BBC Radio 6 Music, Jazz FM’s Chris Philips and Tim Garcia, and Toshiro Matsuura and Papaoul on Worldwide FM.

Winners of the UK Latin Awards ‘Best Alternative Act 2019’, Colectiva are set to step into their power in 2022, with two more singles planned, infused with feminist activism.
