_________

Justin Thurgur has been at the heart of the UK’s Worl Music scene for over twenty years, primarily through his collaborations with the Afrobeat maestro Dele Sosimi and with the pianist Kishon Khan.

He has worked with the likes of Cuban giants Giraldo Piloto, Changuito and Julito Padron, with Nigerian drum legend Tony Allen, with Damon Albarn’s Africa Express project, which included Cheick Tidiane-Seck and Fatoumata Diawara, with Bukky Leo and The Selecter.

He is perhaps most known as the trombonist from the multi-award winning ‘folk’ group Bellowhead. Their split in 2016 led to him forming his own band and releasing his debut album as a bandleader ‘No Confusion’.

This album saw him returning to his roots, a deep passion for Jazz, but with heavy influences from the international music community he’s been immersed in since the mid-90’s.

“Perfection does not exist, but with this album Justin Thurgur and his mates are coming dangerously close to it.” Philippe de Cleen – damusic.be.

“Border breaking communication…deftly celebrates our commonality.” Jane Cornwell – Evening Standard.

Featured in John Morrow’s ‘list of ten Standout acts’ at Love Supreme Jazz Festival, 2017. Theriffmagazine.co.uk.
