PYJÆN have had a rollercoaster of a year since emerging on to the blossoming London jazz scene. Their unique sound has pushed the jazz tradition into new directions combining rock, electro, afrobeat, hiphop and fusion. It’s also pushed them into some incredible venues around the UK and Europe including the EFG London Jazz Festival and La Petite Halle (Paris)
PYJÆN will be sharing music from their upcoming debut album, a result of the continuing musical growth of these young musicians.
Their debut single ’Nah’, released in April, carefully blends infectious bubbling grooves with melodious horn lines. A five piece, rooted in the improvisatory tradition of the jazz greats, PYJÆN thrives on the energetic buzz of crossover styles.
