A welcome return to Leicester Jazzhouse and the Musician, critically acclaimed saxophonist, flautist and composer, Xhosa Cole is an embodiment of the success of numerous community outreach arts programmes in Birmingham. Xhosa first came to public notice as the winner of the 2018 BBC Young Jazz Musician of the Year award. More recently it has been various collaborative, performance and compositional opportunities that have forged his development and helped to establish him as an emerging name on the UK scene.
Although the majority of Xhosa’s creative output is centred around the Jazz idiom from free improv to bebop, he has begun to break through as an up-and-coming composer. Some of his recent commissions have been from the Ideas of Noise Festival, Flatpack Film Festival, Ripieno Players, For-wards & Town Hall Symphony Hall.
