WWA 2016 // Kamasi Washington Announced

October 29, 2015

We’re excited to announce a very special guest, in the form of Kamasi Washington, who is going to join Gilles for the Worldwide Awards on 16th January.

Having performed and recorded with the likes of George Duke, Lauryn Hill, Mos Def and Quincy Jones, Chaka Kahn and Snoop Dogg, most recently Kamasi worked on Kendrick Lamar’s acclaimed 2015 album “To Pimp A Butterfly.” Earlier in 2015, he released his groundbreaking solo album “The Epic” on the trend-setting record label Brainfeeder. With a sound fully in tune with the Gilles Peterson musical ethos, it is a pleasure to welcome Kamasi Washington as a special guest for the 2016 Worldwide Awards.

The line up already includes Little Simz, Henry Wu presents Yussef Kamaal and 79rs Gang and tickets are currently on their second release at £32.

Buy here (with no booking fee!) before they go to the final release at £35.
