Singer-songwriter Zara McFarlane deftly combines the intricacies of jazz with a deep soulfulness. Described as ‘vocally akin to early Nina Simone and Roberta Flack’, her most recent album traces her musical heritage from the Caribbean combining jazz with the pulsating reggae rhythms of Jamaica. With recent performances including Later…with Jools Holland and the mammoth SXSW festival in Austin, Texas, as well as MOBO and Jazz FM awards to her name, she’s one to watch. Expect original material and reworked classics in this gig curated by her longtime champion, DJ and broadcaster Gilles Peterson.

A classy celebration of black British music.
