Sons of Kemet released their stunning debut album Burn in January 2014. Burn garnered the band fans such as Gilles Peterson (who included the album in his Worldwide Awards shortlist) and stunning reviews, including The Arts Desk (who pronounced it Album Of The Year) and The Quietus, but they also scooped the Mobo Best Jazz Award. Sons of Kemet - a super-group of sorts led by clarinetist, saxophonist and composer Shabaka Hutchings with Oren Marshall on tuba and both Tom Skinner and Seb Rochford on drums.  It's partly the deployment of two powerhouse drummers that - gives Sons of Kemet their compelling and infectious sound. Skinner and Rochford's visceral exchange of rhythmic ideas is an unforgettable, highly danceable experience. Throw into this one of the great wild cards of contemporary British music, Oren Marshall on tuba, and you have a wonderfully unorthodox configuration. A curiously addictive album that managed to appeal to both heart and mind.
