seed. is a Mercury Award nominated ten-piece band led by alto saxophonist and composer Cassie Kinoshi.

The band plays music with a West African and Caribbean influenced groove, exploring a blend of genres through original compositions and improvisation. Their debut release Driftglass features the track Afronaut (feat. XANA) which won the Ivors Academy Award 2018 (formerly known as BASCA, British Composer Award) for Jazz Composition for Large Ensemble.

For the occasion, Cassie has picked the Frank Zappa songbook and we cannot wait to see the result!
