Read "Beyond Afrobeat: Kokoroko's World of Black Music" reviewed by Peter Jones

Sons Of Kemet is led by tenor saxophonist, clarinetist and composer Shabaka Hutchings who, though he is far too modest to make any such claim himself, is the de facto standard-bearer for the new wave of musicians who have emerged on the London jazz scene since around 2015.
