London-based trumpeter, vocalist and visual artist Ms Maurice will kick off a special season of Late Night Jazz shows as part of the Hall’s Unstoppable Voices season.
The KOKOROKO bandleader brings her melange of influences together to form organic grooves infused with ’70s jazz and a touch of West African sonic seasoning, all heavily influenced by her London upbringing.
Her music is stimulated by her visual art practice, where she aims to question her identity as well as what it means “to misrepresent vs to be misrepresented”. Her art provocatively explores the notion of ‘blackness’ and the hyper sexualisation of the black female body since the early 1800s.
This performance in the Hall’s Elgar Room is one of a number of Unstoppable Voices shows compiled by composer and saxophonist Cassie Kinoshi, one of the season’s guest curators.
