Tomorrow’s Warriors presents Luke Bacchus.
Luke Bacchus is one of the most exciting emerging jazz musicians on the UK scene. Born and raised in London to Guyanese parents, Bacchus musically explores his Caribbean heritage as one of his major sources of inspiration.
Luke has a distinct sound, pairing entrancing rhythms from the Caribbean with jazz harmonies in his original compositions, as well as a unique approach to playing standards.
Initially teaching himself jazz piano from YouTube videos, Luke went on to study at Trinity Laban Conservatoire, London. Musical influences include Herbie Hancock, McCoy Tyner and Thelonious Monk.
