KAMASI WASHINGTON
KAMASI WASHINGTON is an American Saxophone player, whose playing has been central to a range of live and recorded music, from Quincy Jones and George Duke, to Lauryn Hill and Mos Def. KAMASI recently contributed his searing and mournful playing to KENDRICK LAMAR's "u," while also arranging and conducting the string section throughout Kendrick's most recent release To Pimp a Butterfly.

Last May, KAMASI released his aptly-named debut album The Epic, a 171-minute, three-record, multi-genre journey, under Flying Lotus' record label, Brainfeeder. The orchestration of the album was both written and conducted by KAMASI, and features not only his ten-piece band "The Next Step," but also a 32-piece orchestra and 20-piece choir. Of the tracks found on this classic album, "Re Run Home" and "Miss Understanding" have been notable showstoppers.


His highly-anticipated follow-up album to The Epic is slated for an April 2017 release. In the summer of 2016, Kamasi and his band embarked on a 30+ date run of Europe. He received massive positive reviews across the board at jazz festivals, mainstream music festivals, and headlining shows alike. In August, he sold out the famous Royal Albert Hall in London for the BBC Proms.
