Food, Drinks and Live Music in Brick Lane
This Saturday, drummer, composer and band leader Nadav Schneerson will be taking over Juju’s stage for a high-energy live performance!
Passionate about the genre and its cultural history, Nadav is an active member of London’s contemporary jazz community, regularly playing in live jams like Deptford’s iconic Steamdown and Neue Grafik’s Orii Jam. Schneerson’s well-practiced on a big stage despite his age, opening up for the likes of Joe Armon-Jones, Nubya Garcia and Maisha at their headline shows. Nadav and his band have also given high-energy live performances for the likes of Jazz in the Round, Wildpaths festival and New Generation Jazz.
Nadav Schneerson’s strongest influence is his Jewish heritage, resonating with jazz and traditional music that the Jewish diaspora have produced from all across the globe. Be that Eastern European, Moroccan, Yemenite or Arabic and Turkish music, the London-born and Brighton-raised artist feels most connected to his heritage when absorbing and creating music that pays homage to it. Drumming since the age of 7, Schneerson looks up to to Israeli musicians like Omer Avital, Avishai Cohen, Itamar Borochov, Shai Maestro and Omer Klein, UK jazz acts like Moses Boyd, Shabaka Hutchings and, interestingly as a drummer, hip-hop legends like Madlib, Wu-Tang Clan and A Tribe Called Quest.
Nadav’s Middle Eastern and hard bop style of UK jazz has caught the attention of Jazzwise, CLASH and OFFIE MAG, and his group consists of members playing in a range of projects in and around London.
This one is FREE and really not to miss!
