Founded in 2008, by Manchester-based trumpeter, composer and producer Matthew Halsall, Gondwana Records, turned 10 last year. Originally founded to shine a light on the Manchester scene, Gondwana Records is one of the UKs most influential jazz (and beyond) record labels, launching GoGo Penguin on the world and now home to an international roster featuring artists from as far afield as Los Angeles and Melbourne, Australia.

Mammal Hands perform exhilarating, Captivating, ethereal and majestic, Mammal Hands are driven by their unique line-up of drums, piano and saxophone. Their hypnotic music draws on a rich well of influences from Sufi trance and West African music to folk music, contemporary classical, spiritual jazz and electronica to produce something uniquely their own.
