Broadcaster, DJ and poet Haseeb Iqbal hosts a monthly show on Worldwide FM with incredible guests and in-depth explorations throughout culture, music and art.
Haseeb Iqbal has been immersed in the new UK jazz movement for several years now, frequently having epiphany-inducing moments to the likes of Sons Of Kemet, KOKOROKO and Ezra Collective.
These mind-blowing moments have often taken place in DIY or independent spaces, venues and festivals, with the events organised by promoters who – just like the musicians and the fans in attendance – do it strictly for the love.
In his debut book, Noting Voices: Contemplating London’s Culture, Haseeb joins the dots between the artists, promoters and fans who have built a burgeoning scene around the sound and energy of new UK jazz and shines a light on how important to and influential on wider culture grassroots movements such as this are.
