What do Amy Winehouse, Randy Brecker, Earth Wind & Fire, Jessie J, Mark Ronson, Laura Mvula, Nigel Kennedy, Pee Wee Ellis, Jason Rebello, Candi Staton and Paul Jackson Trio have in common?
They have all relied on Xantoné Blacq’s (pron. Zan-Toe-Nay) Voice, Keyboard and Percussion playing in their bands so it’s no surprise that his music is of a super high level. Born in Lagos, Nigeria his music always retains the rhythmic excitement of Africa and in line with his personality, his music is bright, full of colour and uplifting.
Ever asked yourself what it would sound like if a modern day musical Cyborg / Terminator was created fusing Stevie Wonder’s soulfulness and vocal style with Herbie Hancock’s funky keyboard playing and Quincy Jones’ mind for musical arrangement? Watch Xan at our Karamel gig and you’ll have the answer!
So far in this year alone, Xan has performed in Denmark, Korea, Brazil, Italy, Switzerland, France, Slovakia and is set to perform in Poland, Germany, Bulgaria and many more places.
Chosen twice by iTunes as Staff Favourite.
Voted no.31 in top 100 tunes of the year – Gilles Peterson’s BBC RADIO 1 listeners.
