Kamasi Washington

Kamasi Washington is a multi-instrumentalist, composer and producer born and raised in Los Angeles. He grew up playing jazz in the city’s storied Leimert Park neighborhood, forming his first band, the Young Jazz Giants, with Stephen “Thundercat” Bruner, Ronald Bruner, Jr. and Cameron Graves in high school. Washington went on to study ethnomusicology at UCLA and play with Snoop Dogg, Raphael Saadiq and more.

His debut album, The Epic, was released in 2015 to rapturous critical reception, universally embraced as one of the best of the year and awarded the inaugural American Music Prize. His highly anticipated second album, Heaven and Earth, was released in June 2018 and is set to build on the success of The Epic as well as Washington’s acclaimed 2017 Harmony of Difference EP.
