Firmly rooted in the hard bop tradition, Mark Kavuma's Banger Factory are one of the most exciting live acts on London’s jazz scene.

Mark Kavuma combines hints of gospel, soul, and spiritual jazz alongside hard bop: a subgenre of jazz related to bebop. His album Kavuma (2018) was voted one of the best albums of the year by Downbeat magazine. Mark is an associate music leader for the Tomorrow’s Warriors jazz development programme, and is also involved in their professional performance ensembles, including the acclaimed Nu Civilisation Orchestra, Jazz Jamaica Small band and Jazz Jamaica All Stars.
