He was featured on Yussef Dayes' 2019 single Duality, and contributed keys to the Yussef Dayes Trio's 2020 album Welcome to the Hills. He also released an album, The Word was Made Phresh, with his band Phresoul on Italian label Hyperjazz in 2019. On Sunday he will be performing some of his original compositions inspired as much by the modal post-bop of John Coltrane and Miles Davis as by modern artists he has been inspired by such as Flying Lotus and Thundercat. He will be playing alongside Tom Driessler (bass), Jamie Murray (drums), Xvngo (tenor saxophone), and Jay Phelps (trumpet). YAHAEL CAMARA ONONO + Special Guest - 6pm Percussionist Yahael Camara Onono is a second generation Londoner whose rich West African musical heritage, coupled with his musical experiences in the UK, inspires him to bridge the gap between the diaspora and West Africa. Yahael was born in North West London to Nigerian and Senegalese parents. Despite being born in the UK and growing up in inner city London for most of his life, he had an affinity for his folkloric music from a very young age. He received his first talking drum at the age of 6 from his grandfather, and later started playing the djembe at the age of 8. Though he grew up in Harlesden, he was given the gift of an open mind through travel at an early age. He founded the Balimaya Project in 2019, named after a word from the Maninka language that means the essence of kinship. On Sunday Yahael will be performing with a tenor saxophonist whose relentlessly evolving career includes performances with the Sun Ra Arkestra, Floating Points and Polar Bear, among many others
