MUSIC

The most raucous ovation of the festival went to Nihilism. Fronted by the violin-wielding whirlwind that is Saskia Horton, this feel-good five-piece hopped, skipped and jumped between jazz, hiphop and soul with such infectious energy that at the end of the set, the collective howls for a final encore could only be heeded by the powers that be.

- Alex Malin , Brighton's finest 

Horton is an active member of the burgeoning New London Jazz Scene. Having founded nuJAZZ band Nihilism- which mixes influences of Hip hop, Funk, House & Grime. They have made a profound mark since their inception in 2016. 

Playing from Jazz Cafe to Royal Festival Hall & London Jazz Festival & releasing their debut EP EXPOSITION in 2017 they are now working towards their debut Album.

She is also a member electro-neo soul band Sawamanga & experimental Jazz 12-piece the Levitation Orchestra. 

Having worked in a variety of settings from Orchestra, to String Quartet, Jazz quintet & as a Composer, Saskia's wide variety of skills allow her to traverse many fields within music alone & particularly she hopes to hone her passion for string arrangement & orchestration in the coming years.
