Event Details

Justin Thurgur, trombonist for Bellowhead, Lokkhi Terra and Dele Sosimi’s Afro-Beat Orchestra, tours his debut Afro-Jazz album ‘No Confusion’.
“Groove-conscious…. The former Bellowhead trombonist displays border-breaking communication on his new LP” 4/5 Evening Standard

Justin Thurgur is most known as the trombonist from the seminal folk group Bellowhead, for over twenty years however he has also been at the heart of the world music scene in Britain, particularly as the right hand man of former Fela and Femi Kuti keyboardist Dele Sosimi and with his long term collaboration with Kishon Khan. A defining feature of Thurgur’s career has been a commitment to this idea of sharing and shared musical communication, breaking down borders and creating music that celebrates commonality. ‘No Confusion’ is Thurgur’s first release under his own name and is a true representation of this ideal. It combines his early love for the jazz of Miles Davis, Wayne Shorter, Coltrane and Lee Morgan with his own musical journey. That journey has seen Thurgur working with the cream of the world music community both in London and further afield including Tony Allen, Damon Albarn’s Africa Express project, Bukky Leo, Wara, Inemo, Osvaldo Chacon, Roberto Pla, Javier Camilo, The Selecter and The Levellers.
