Camilla george

Camilla is a London-based alto Saxophonist, recently nominated as a rising star in the British Jazz Awards.

 

With an interest in tracing the African roots of jazz through to its present forms, Camilla has created a sound the embraces elements of Afrobeat, Caribbean Calypso, as well as hip-hop and blues.

 

Her debut album Isang, pays homage to her native South East Nigeria, and with a new album based on African folk tales in the making, we are delighted to confirm that Camilla will be bringing her inventive and fresh sound to our Festival audience.

The Festival is sponsored by the Arts Council, the University of Central Lancashire, the Faculty of Culture and the Creative Industries and the Creative Arts Development Group. We are partners with the Ribble Valley Jazz and Blues Festival, the Preston Caribbean Carnival and Making a Mark and we are supported by Preston City Council. (c) 2018 UCLan
