This July is your chance to hear the marvellous MOBO nominated Femi Temowo entertain at the Retro
Femi Temowo was raised listening to West African musical pioneers such as Fela Kuti, Sunny Ade and Ebenezer Obey. It was only later he discovered the legendary Charlie Parker and classic jazz albums such as Miles Davis’ ‘Kind Of Blue’, and after being inspired by the great jazz guitarist Wes Montgomery, he decided to pursue his passion for the guitar.
Femi’s career highlights include working with critically acclaimed jazz saxophonist and UK Hip Hop artist Soweto Kinch. His phenomenally successful collaborations with Soweto culminated in a nomination for the Mercury Music Prize, a BBC Jazz award for best new group and several MOBO awards.
Come and experience his slick and melodic guitar sound on Tuesday 29th July at the Retro Bistrot in Teddington.
We have our Jazz Night snack menu as well as the usual set and al carte, and welcome those who may simply want a light bite and a drink while enjoying the music.
