Tomorrow’s Warriors +1 ft. Romarna Campbell

Tomorrow’s Warriors alum, and acclaimed drummer, Romarna Campbell teams up with some of London’s finest emerging jazz talent for another very special Tomorrow’s Warriors +1 live session.

Romarna’s musical storytelling begins with the drums. The nomadic spirit of this exciting drummer, producer and composer lives in her jazz and hip hop-infused music. Her irrepressible energy can be heard on Inherently Political, a super-charged sonic assault on racism that immediately won favour with Anne Frankenstein, Jazz FM’s Tony Minvielle and had her crowned by Jamz Supernova as New Name of the Week.

Having honed her craft with Berklee College of Music, Tomorrow's Warriors and the Notebenders, Romarna stands on the shoulders of giants and is drawing inspiration from the view as she beats a path forward that is very much her own.

Romarna will be joining Tomorrow’s Warriors Frontline for this +1 session at Foyles Charing Cross Road. Frontline is a formidable 8-piece line-up of some of the finest young Warriors musicians, championing the role of women in jazz.

Playing a selection of upbeat jazz standards, and developing their own compositions, Frontline is one of Tomorrow’s Warriors’ flagship development groups.

For over 30 years, Tomorrow’s Warriors has played a vital role within its community and the wider music industry and has been credited with literally changing the face of UK jazz.

Free access to Tomorrow’s Warriors artistic programme has proved crucial in nurturing the nascent talent and early careers of so many of the most exciting UK artists currently tearing up the interna-tional jazz scene including Mercury Prize 2023 winners Ezra Collective, Moses Boyd, Nubya Garcia, Shabaka Hutchings and Sons of Kemet, ESKA, Jason Yarde, Denys Baptiste, Robert Mitchell, So-weto Kinch, Shirley Tetteh, Byron Wallen...the list goes on.

A black-founded and black-led organisation, Tomorrow’s Warriors is based at Southbank Centre in London and offers a pioneering, comprehensive programme of learning and training which champi-ons and supports young black and female talent and those who come from challenging circumstanc-es that would be a barrier to accessing opportunities to pursue a music career

Doors will open from 6:30pm.
