Born in Leeds and belonging to the world of undeniable grooves, 9-piece afrobeat/funk/jazz ensemble Nubiyan Twist bring the party next June.

Since forming in 2011 at the Leeds College of Music, Nubiyan Twist have risen to become one of the leading groups in the fertile UK music scene. Known for their eclectic blend of styles and powerful sound, the virtuosic nine-piece band’s thrilling exploration of tight musicianship and infectious grooves have consistently mesmerised audiences.
Their 2015 self-titled debut album and acclaimed ‘Jungle Run’ in spring 2019 led to their third massive album ‘Freedom Fables’, released on Strut Records in March 2021. The album was heavily playlisted on BBC 6 Music alongside live sessions with Gilles Peterson, Mary Anne Hobbs and Jamie Cullum on BBC Radio 2, plus their UK TV debut on Later…with Jools Holland.
UK tours in 2019, 2021 and 2022 included sold out dates across the country and they’ve rocked festival stages at Glastonbury, Wilderness, Green Man, We Out Here, WOMAD, Shambala, Love Supreme, Boomtown, Edinburgh Jazz Festival, and David Byrne’s Meltdown as well as supporting legends such as Tony Allen, Ebo Taylor and Nile Rogers and Chic. In Europe, alongside their own headline tours they’ve performed at renowned jazz festivals including Supersonic, Jazz A Vienne, Jazz A Junas, Prague International Jazz Festival and Montreux Jazz amongst others.
