Nubiyan Twist perform at the Upfront Arts Venue near Hutton in the Forest, Skelton, Penrith - an 11 piece live band playing afrobeat, reggae, jazz and latin. Nubiyan Twist are a Leeds born, London based musical collective. Orchestrated by guitarist / producer Tom Excell, they create a unique, infectious sound in an eclectic mix of styles, drawing on jazz, hip-hop, afrobeat, latin, soul, reggae and dance music.

A blend of virtuosic players, skilled producers and inspired composers join forces to lay the foundations for singer and MC Nubiya Brandon’s soulful and melodic vocals. With an epic 10 piece live show featuring a 4 piece horn section, 2 vocalists, electronics and an international (Brazil/UK) rhythm section, Nubiyan Twist create a powerful and unforgettable experience, equally at home lighting up late-night festival headliner slots or selling out the UK’s best jazz venues.

Their March 2015 debut album Nubiyan Twist received strong support across the jazz, world and hiphop press, with support from sources as diverse as Huey Walker, David Rodigan, Craig Charles, The Independent, Songlines, Afropunk and SBTV. This was followed up with Siren Song in May 2016, since their humble beginnings at Leeds College of Music, the band have performed on huge stages across the world, being chosen by David Byrne to perform at Queen Elizabeth Hall for the South Bank’s Meltdown Festival, selling out London’s iconic Jazz Cafe, and rocking festival stages from Fusion to Wilderness, Boomtown to Edinburgh Jazz Festival, with their powerful sound and unique blend of styles.
