Mami Wata Returns


Born in Eket, Nigeria, Camilla George has been interested in music from an early age and particularly in the fusion of African and Western music. She grew up listening to Fela Kuti alongside Jackie McLean and Charlie Parker. Camilla started playing the saxophone at age 11 when she won a music contest and as a result won saxophone lessons. Following studies in Jazz Performance at Trinity College Of Music in 2014 she formed her own band showcasing the stars of the new UK Jazz Scene and recorded three acclaimed albums including her debut ISANG, its follow-up. THE PEOPLE COULD FLY, and her latest IBIO IBIO, a tribute to Camill’s tribe, the Ibibio people of South Eastern Coastal Nigeria.


The festival had already revealed the strength of the modern jazz genre in the UK, and especially amongst younger musicians. Camilla sustained the quality opening with an intro that exposed wonderful solo performances which immediately revealed Camilla’s saxophone playing and notably the keyboard skills of Andrew McCormack. As the set progressed with ‘Ekpe’ the band’s powerful rhythm section came to the fore with animated and rocky displays. My only doubt was the loud and aggressive tone of the drumming which was in sharp contrast to previous, more subtle displays. There were many superb solo performances during the first segment of the performance but it was ‘Abasi Isang’ with sax and keys solos which moved and inspired me most. This was a memorable musical moment for me.
