SUPPORTS TO BE ANNOUNCED
doors from 7pm
headlining this majestic show
is the one and only, UK’s – EZRA COLLECTIVE
celebrating the release of their album, Where I’m Meant To Be,
They’re coming all the way down to Sunny Australia,
big festivals & big venues across the country,
and naturally, to a ballroom in Adelaide, on Kaurna Country. Let’s go.
Ezra Collective’s new era, a venture in discovered maturity and raised stakes, will be defined by the anticipated second album. Where I’m Meant To Be is a thumping celebration of life, an affirming elevation in the Ezra Collective’s winding hybrid sound and refined collective character. The songs marry cool confidence with bright energy. Full of call-and-response conversations between their ensemble parts, a natural product of years improvising together on-stage, the album – which also features Sampa The Great, Kojey Radical, Emile Sande and Nao – will light up sweaty dance floors and soundtrack summer dinners in equal measure.
The group – consisting of Femi (who also drums for Gorillaz) as drummer and bandleader, Joe Armon-Jones on keys, James Mollison on saxophone, Ife Ogunjobi on trumpet, and Femi’s younger brother TJ on bass guitar – originally came together in 2012 as teenagers at the youth band of Tomorrow’s Warriors, a music education initiative at the South Bank Centre in London. They have since shot forward to become architects of a new phase in their city’s musical journey, a hybrid time in which Black genres – jazz, grime, afrobeat and more – can dovetail and harmonize fluidly, at new, forever rising levels.
With sold-out spring and summer shows and long-awaited big label support from Partisan Records, ambition and excitement are running at an all-time high. Ezra Collective is back, bigger and better and bolder than ever before.
This will be SPECIAL.
