Parrjazz presents Soweto Kinch
Award winning alto-saxophonist and MC SOWETO KINCH is one of the most exciting and versatile musicians in both the British jazz and hip hop scenes.

In October 2007, he won his second MOBO Award, at the O2 Arena, London where he was announced as the winner in the Best Jazz Act category.
His skills as a hip hop MC and producer have also garnered him recognition in the urban music world: having supported the likes of KRS ONE, Dwele and TY, and being championed by the likes of Mos Def, Rodney P and BBC 1-Xtra’s Twin B.
Soweto has collaborated with the BBC and Drum and Bass producer Goldie for the prime time reality show 'By Royal Appointment’ .
