Last Thursday, ten-piece London jazz outfit SEED Ensemble took to the stage at the Hyundai Mercury Prize 2019 ceremony to perform “Interplanetary Migration.”
The Cassie Kinoshi-led group performed a soulful rendition of the song, sans guest artist Mr Ekow. The track closes the outfit’s debut album Driftglass, which was up for the prize that evening. The record ultimately lost to British rapper Dave’s Psychodrama LP.
Besides “Interplanetary Migration,” SEED Ensemble’s Driftglass also includes the track “Afronaut,” featuring the poet XANA. Watch their performance of “Interplanetary Migration” here:
