Tomorrow’s Warriors presents the next generation of jazz musicians and artists supported through their award-winning talent development programme.

Tomorrow’s Warriors presents London based guitarist Francisco Garcia de Paredes as he leads his quintet to close out this year’s Karamel Jazz season with a bang!

Francisco has performed at venues such as Ronnie Scott's Jazz Club, Pizza Express Jazz, The Vortex and been fortunate enough to perform alongside musicians such as Gareth Lockrane, Rachel Cohen and very recently the National Youth Jazz Orchestra with Bob Mintzer.

His music draws influence from musicians such as Gretchen Parlato, Aaron Parks, Jim Hall, Kurt Rosenwinkel amongst many others and tries to blend these influences to create his own compositional voice

He will be playing a set of brand-new compositions (both instrumental and vocal alongside jazz singer Eliana Veinberga) with a band of some of the best young jazz musicians in London.

Band lineup: Francisco Garcia de Paredes - Guitar ; Eliana Veinberga - Vocals ;
Rūta Sipola - Flute ;
Harry Pearce - Double Bass ;
Tom Potter - Drums ;
