As part of our new 'Sunday Spotlight Series' we welcome Femi Temowo on July 23rd!

Femi Temowo is a MOBO Award nominated musician who was raised listening to

West African pioneers such as Fela Kuti, Sunny Ade and Ebenezer Obey. Later

he discovered the legendary Charlie Parker and classic jazz albums such as Miles

Davis’ ‘Kind Of Blue’. It was when he became inspired by the great jazz guitarist

Wes Montgomery, that he decided to pursue his passion for the guitar, based

around a fusion of these musical influences.

Early benchmarks in Femi’s career include being approached by critically

acclaimed jazz saxophonist and UK Hip Hop artist Soweto Kinch, who asked him

to become part of his newly formed quartet in 2002. 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.

As his

talent and success gained momentum, so too did the demand for Femi as a

versatile and stylish guitar player. Femi’s intricacy and skill on his instrument of

choice led to a diverse range of high profile collaborations.

Femi’s slick and melodic guitar sound has earned him a place beside many great

musicians and artists from across many genres, having played with the likes of –

George Benson, Dee Dee Bridgewater, Courtney Pine, The Roots, Omar,

Roachford, Amy Winehouse, Jason Rebello, Eska Mtungwazi, Soweto Kinch, Terri

Walker, Jean Toussaint, Don Blackman, Michal Urbaniak and many more.

“A beautiful, delightful, mix-up!”

- Giles Peterson - BBC Radio 6 Music

"One of Europe's finest and most sought after guitarists."

- Timeout Magazine
