Tomorrow’s Warriors: Christ-Stéphane Boizi

Christ-Stéphane Boizi

Outstanding young jazz trombonist and Tomorrow’s Warriors alumni Christ-Stéphane Boizi is currently in his second year at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance. Part of Tomorrow’s Warriors development programme, he has played at We Out Here Festival, Pizza Express Soho, Ronnie Scott’s, and the Jazz Café, as well performing with Nathaniel Facey and Mark Kavuma.

Leading his own band, he draws on the influences of hard bop artists including Horace Silver and Jackie McLean and is particularly inspired Art Blakey and his use of instrumentation with the Jazz Messengers.

Christ-Stephane blends this hard-bop psyche with elements of Gospel and contemporary jazz in his own stunning compositions that are becoming the hallmark of this exciting emerging artist.

Who are Tomorrow’s Warriors

For over 30 years, Tomorrow’s Warriors has played a vital role within its community and the wider music industry and has been credited with literally changing the face of UK jazz.

Free access to Tomorrow’s Warriors artistic programme has proved crucial in nurturing the nascent talent and early careers of so many of the most exciting UK artists currently tearing up the international jazz scene including Mercury Prize 2023 winners Ezra Collective, Moses Boyd, Nubya Garcia, Shabaka Hutchings and Sons of Kemet, ESKA, Jason Yarde, Denys Baptiste, Robert Mitchell, Soweto Kinch, Shirley Tetteh, Byron Wallen…the list goes on.

A black-founded and black-led organisation, Tomorrow’s Warriors is based at Southbank Centre in London and offers a pioneering, comprehensive programme of learning and training which champions and supports young black and female talent and those who come from challenging circumstances that would be a barrier to accessing opportunities to pursue a music career.

“Tomorrow’s Warriors occupies a unique and vital space in our cultural landscape. Their work in helping positively shape future generations is of critical importance especially with the tribulations we currently face. Please keep supporting – each one, teach one!” Gilles Peterson
