A hip-hop icon and the first and only rapper to perform at the Royal Albert Hall in London, Guru has illustrated his love for and understanding of the jazz legacy through his critically acclaimed hip-hop and jazz fusion series, Jazzmatazz, which features collaborations with musicians such as Roy Ayers, Donald Byrd, Lonnie Liston Smith, Ramsey Lewis and Branford Marsalis.
This artistic performance at the 31st JCMC promises to be innovative, captivating, and compelling.
