On 25th November 2018 , Youthsayers printed an amazing performance at The EFG London Jazz Festival as part of the Next Generations Concert that highlighted young and upcoming Jazz talent.

Breaking The Silence – Imperial War Museum Remembrance Sunday

Remembrance Sunday 2018

On 11th November 2018 members of Youthsayers , Raw Material Artists Development and Poets Benna and MGDLN performed at The Imperial War Museum . The artists devised a piece that incorporated poetry and music that depicted their feelings about war and how it related to Remembrance Day and the 100th anniversary of World War 1 Armistice Day.
