Colectiva

Profile Image

Exploring the boundaries between Afro-Latin music and Jazz, COLECTIVA are a unique voice on the UK scene, representing the meeting of two musical worlds they believe belong together.

Their first single, Under The came to life when jazz pianist Maria Grapsa brought an early arrangement of the tune to the collective. Working together over a series of collaborative sessions typical of their creative process, they crafted the song you hear today.

Founded as a creative experiment by trombonist Viva Msimang, COLECTIVA makes space for female and non-binary identifying musicians to come together and collaborate in a new dynamic, an alternative to traditional hierarchical structures, free from the Male Gaze.
