EFG London Jazz Festival: Makaya McCraven & LCO: In These Times

Event Date: Saturday 11 November 2023 - 19:30
Address: Barbican Centre,
1 Silk Street

The prolific American drummer and producer Makaya McCraven performs his boundary-pushing album In These Times in the Hall with the London Contemporary Orchestra, conducted by Robert Ames.

Percussionist and composer Makaya McCraven is one of Chicago’s most in-demand artists whose inventive process & intuitive, cinematic style defy categorization.

His breakthrough 2015 album In the Moment debuted a unique brand of ‘organic beat music’ that quickly launched him into the vanguard of not only internationally-known jazz artists, but also a niche genre of next-wave composer-producers blurring the boundaries of jazz & electronic music.

Following his impressive debut followed a string of incredible releases including Universal Beings, We’re New Again and Deciphering the Message. His latest release and seventh studio album with the three-label collaboration of International Anthem, Nonesuch & XL Recordings In These Times features several notable guest performances, including Jeff Parker, Brandee Younger and Ohmme’s Macie Stewart.
