ENKI are a modern jazz quartet based in Manchester. Drawing on a wide range of
influences from Alfa Mist to John Zorn, the four young musician focus on spontaneity
and synergy. They have presented their original repertoire both in the UK and
Luxembourg and are working on releasing their first record.
The band played their debut gig in Soup Kitchen Manchester in May 2019 collaborating
with the London-based afro-jazz band Kiki and the Tiger. In July 2019 they participated
in the new edition of the Echterlive Festival in Luxembourg, which attracts a large
audience with artists such as Donny McCaslin and Joss Stone. After summer, ENKI
quartet kicked off the new season with some gigs at well-known Mancunian jazz clubs
Matt & Phreds and Band on the Wall and a gig in London. They have most recently
hosted their own club night in the Northern Quarter of Manchester inviting other local
bands to play alongside them.
Individually, the members of the band are active in the Manchester, London and
Luxembourgish jazz scenes. They have been described as ‘products of the blossoming
South Manchester jazz scene’ whilst their ‘quiet confidence and fierce grasp of jazz
vocabulary took us out into the night feeling refreshed and impressed.’
