Undoubtedly one of the rising stars of the U.K. jazz scene, acoustic-electronica trio GoGo Penguin don’t describe themselves as a jazz trio but rather as a resurgence of jazz fused with hip-hop, rock, dance, and soul.

The Mercury Prize–nominated band recently made their first appearances at South by Southwest (2017) and Coachella (2016), where they delivered up their trademark mash-up of minimalist piano, deeply propulsive bass lines, and electronica-inspired drums.

They will perform tracks off their recent albums: "Man Made Object" (2016), inspired by the band’s fascination with ideas about robotics, transhumanism, and human augmentation, and "Live at Abbey Road" (2017), a beautifully recorded snapshot of the band at work.
