Certain Blacks Ensemble Festival

Certain Blacks Ensemble Festival

The Certain Blacks Ensemble Festival will feature circus, music, performance and live art, created by artists working outside of the mainstream. This is a festival celebrating diversity, rather than one based on artists’ backgrounds or identities.

Acclaimed as the greatest male jazz vocalist on the UK scene, Cleveland Watkiss will be headlining the day with his band, Warriors International Improv Ensemble. He is joined by Orphy Robinson on vibraphone and Rowland Sutherland on flute.
