Collective X line-up for Love & Protest at Stratford Circus


Genre-defying London-based group Collective X, led by singer Alya Al Sultani, are set to launch their debut album Love & Protest this Friday, 11 May, at Stratford Circus, London. Exploring a diverse mix of jazz, funk, hip hop, grime and soul, the band includes many leading musicians from the capital's jazz and improv scenes such as vibes virtuoso Orphy Robinson, pianist Pat Thomas, bassist Neil Charles, drummer Mark Sanders and vocalist Cleveland Watkiss MBE. Special guests featured on the night include singer Heidi Vogel and Indian dancer Maryam Shakiba, while there will be an opening set from scorching jazz-rock band Triforce whose soulful take on the music of Mahavishnu Orchestra has made them one of the most-talked-about young bands on the London jazz scene.
