Zara McFarlane has long been recognised as one of the most talented jazz-inspired singer/songwriters to come out of the UK scene, previous albums have gathered a clutch of awards, drawing from influences as widely ranging as the deep spiritual jazz of Pharoah Sanders to dub and reggae. Her live shows have seen McFarlane and her band create a joint exploration of the meeting points between jazz and the rhythms of Jamaica; reggae, Kumina, calypso and nyabinghi, shaded with hints of the psychedelic.
