About the band
The Jazz collective have embarked on their journey of the exponentially growing UK Jazz scene. Their sound is the musical representation of community and togetherness, with multinational members and cross-cultural inspirations.TUCAN’s fresh take on Jazz sees them incorporate Soul, Funk and RnB, with the injection of West-African and Latin American rhythms and melodies, drawing inspiration from the likes of Snarky Puppy, Robert Glasper and Ezra Collective. As TUCAN solidify their focus on bringing people together, their live shows have blossomed through their energetic and captivating performances, often leaving the audience moving and grooving.
Formed in 2017, the band met on the music programme at the Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts. The collective soon made a name for themselves, with a gig supporting internationally renowned Chicago Jazz Drummer, ‘The Beat Scientist’, Makaya McCraven, with their debut release of their single ‘Flight’, recorded and filmed at the famous Abbey Road Studios. With the band now based in London, TUCAN the collective are constantly growing their fanbase with their releases; their debut EP ‘LIBRE, and accompanying Remix Album ‘LIBRE: THE REWORKS’ showing their infectious energy and vestatility.
