Keyna Wilkins is a Sydney-based composer-musician whose music has been variously characterised as (amongst other labels) Art Music, Space Jazz and Indigenous-Jazz Fusion. Certain of her preoccupations resonate with issues that we here in Scotland, likewise face. Scottish Jazz Space’s FM had the pleasure of interviewing her recently.

Lukas Ligeti is a composer, drummer, electronic percussionist and improvisor whose conceptually rich and genre transcending music is attracting increasing attention world-wide. He hasn’t played in Scotland for a few years now, but hopefully he’ll tour through here again in the not too distant future! 🤞 Here is SJS’ (under my name FM) recent interview with him, as appeared in Jazz In Europe today 5th July 2021.

Jazz in Europe have run an interview with me (FM) to promote the Scottish jazz scene! 😀 A bit of a stream of consciousness gush from me, but hey, Scottish jazz IS AMAZING!
(This article was originally planned to come out on International Women’s Day, hence the greater focus on women jazzers.) https://jazzineurope.mfmmedia.nl/2021/05/the-scottish-jazz-space/
For International Women’s Day, here is a Q and A with the wonderful Scottish violinist, vocalist and composer Seonaid Aitken!
