MOBO-nominated, Nigerian-born saxophonist and star of the award-winning 'Jazz Jamaica' leads her own critically acclaimed project showcasing the stars of the new UK jazz scene. Dubbed the 'Golden Girl of Jazz' by the Evening Standard her debut album 'ISANG' (pronounced e-sang 'journey' in her native Ibibio language) received huge critical acclaim. Her follow-up @The People Could Fly' features special guests Omar as well as in demand guitarist Shirley Tetteh.
Camilla's love of fusing African and Western Music to make her own unique style is a key reason why she is a firm fixture on the London scene alongside peers such as Nubya Garcia, Shabaka Hutchings and Zara McFarlane. Her music is a hypnotizing blend of Afrofuturism, hip hop and jazz.
