LONDON Ray’s Jazz at Foyles (Level 6)
107 Charing Cross Road
Ms Maurice (Sheila Maurice-Grey) will be bringing a melange of influences from 70s jazz grooves to West African music tradition.
With sounds heavily influenced by her London upbringing, Ms Maurice's music is stimulated by her visual art practice where she aims to question her identity, as well as what it means to misrepresent vs to be misrepresented. Ms Maurice is bandleader of KOKOROKO and plays with jazz septet Nérija who were nominated for Jazz Fm Breakthrough Act 2016 and were the winner of Parliamentary Jazz Newcomer of Year 2017. She has performed with the likes of Solange, Kano on the Jool’s Holland Show & The Mercury Prize 2016 and features on Little Simz’s album Stillness in Wonderland.
