Shabaka's work transcends conventional notions of genre and draws on a vast array of cultural influences. While he is undeniably a pioneering voice in the British jazz renaissance, his scope is much broader: He has also performed classical concertos with world-renowned orchestras, led several hugely influential bands (Sons of Kemet, The Comet is Coming, Shabaka and The Ancestors) and recently released a critically acclaimed solo album, Afrikan Culture, a work of exceptional beauty and urgency, focusing on the East Asian instrument, the Shakuhachi, of which Shabaka is a leading interpreter.
