About the event

Mezcla are a Glasgow based jazz-fusion ensemble attracting attention for their soulful  blend of eclectic jazz and infectious grooves. Led by David Bowden (Former BBC  Young Scottish Jazz Musician of the Year), the line-up features some of the best of  Glasgow’s vibrant young jazz scene. The name means ‘mixture’ and the band fuse a  broad range of influences from jazz, funk, rock and world music into one voice. The  Mezcla sound is distinguished by uplifting melodies, shimmering textures, and  visceral improvisation.

The band released their debut album ‘Shoot the Moon’ on Ubuntu records to critical  acclaim – including ‘Best Band’ and ‘Best Album’ nominations at the Scottish Jazz  Awards. The album also made the SAY Award longlist for the top 20 albums in  Scotland across all genres. Performance highlights have included BBC Music’s  Biggest Weekend, Belladrum Festival, Celtic Connections and London Jazz Festival.
