Band on the Wall presents Free Jazz – a free-entry event showcasing some of the most exciting new artists pushing genre boundaries, playing jazz, electronic, hip-hop, funk, soul and experimental sounds.

Emil Karlsen & Mark Hanslip Duo
Norwegian drummer, improviser and composer Emil Karlsen combines with tenor saxophonist Mark Hanslip.
Emanuel J Burton
Emanuel J Burton is a jazz drummer who studied at BIMM. He takes influence from the likes of Thundercat, George Duke and more.
John Haycock is a live looping artist passionate about affecting acoustic sounds with electronics exploring new sonority. John takes his home made kora and runs it through a series of electronic devices creating lush soundscapes and solid beats and overlays it with woodwind instruments, bridging the gap between ancient West African Folk melodies and modern electronica, visiting influences from hip-hop to house to dub along the way.
Yaatri is a five piece jazz crossover quintet formed in Leeds in 2018. Their blend of complex composition and ethereal soundscapes captivates the heart as well as the mind. Influenced by the emotive quality of the Scandinavian jazz tradition, the momentum of the rhythms of India and the energy of rock and roll, their music has a strong sense of purpose and journey.
