Kamasi Washington @ Anthology
Oct 10 @ 7:00 pm – 11:55 pm
Kamasi Washington @ Anthology

When Kamasi Washington released his tour de force LP, The Epic, in 2015, it instantly set him on a path as our generation’s torchbearer for progressive, improvisation music that would open the door for young audiences to experience music unlike anything they had heard before.

His mass appeal continues to grow drawing vibrant, multi-ethnic and multi-generational crowds with tour stops at the world’s most prominent festivals such as Coachella, Glastonbury, Fuji Rock, Bonnaroo and Primavera while also releasing his latest offering in 2018, Heaven and Earth. Since his last visit to New Zealand in early 2018, Washington will be bringing his epic brand of jazz to Kiwi audiences off the back of a huge northern hemisphere run alongside legend Herbie Hancock.
