Gilles Peterson’s Brownswood Recordings will release the debut long-player of Maisha, titled There Is A Place

Maisha is the brainchild of bandleader Jake Long and features a clutch of London musicians who’ve come through the same circles: AmanĂ© Suganami, Twm Dylan, Tim Doyle, Yahael Camara-Onono, Shirley Tetteh, and Nubya Garcia, the latter of whom played a part in shaping the early sound of the band. The band’s 2016 debut EP was released through Jazz Re:freshed, and they were part of We Out Here, Brownswood’s early 2018 record documenting London’s genre-bending, jazz-influenced underground. They’ve also been featured on Boiler Room, supported the Sun Ra Arkestra, and played at Church of Sound, a live series that’s quickly become a staple of the emergent scene.

There Is A Place, their album debut, was recorded across three days in mid-2018.
