Nubiyan Twist

Nubiyan Twist

Leeds / London afro-jazz collective Nubiyan Twist hit the road in Feb 2022 for the second leg of their UK ‘Freedom Fables’ tour following a run of sold-out shows up and down the country.

Expect a powerful horn section, ultra-tight musicianship and heavy afro-jazz grooves as the band bring their incendiary show to The Subs on 24th Feb.

Freedom Fables was released in February 2021 to widespread acclaim and included 4 6Music & Jazz FM playlisted singles, an appearance on Jools Holland, whilst a shortened festival season saw big slots at Green Man, We Out Here & South Facing.
