The Mercury Prize nominated quartet, deemed the “best live band in the UK” by the London Evening Standard, deploy their sax, tuba and twin drum arsenal to galvanise, energise and make us think as well as dance. Current third album, Your Queen is A Reptile, sees reedman Shabaka Hutchings and Co. drawing on grunge, reggae and Afro-Caribbean influences to pay homage to nine women of colour, including Angela Davis and the abolitionist Harriet Tubman. Live, with rappers, singers and instrumentalists, Sons of Kemet sizzle.
