Music - Young Fathers - 19 July, 2018, Nice Jazz Festival, Masséna Stage - At the moment, no-one else is making music like this - A blistering performance.

On the button at 8 there is a pounding beat - Young Fathers are here. The Nice crowd is just arriving. A pity that some will miss this. There is a core following there with them as they blend rap, rock and soul. Nobody cares - it’s Young Fathers! Tight, heavy, hard - just the right attitude to take this audience on. Most are here to see Massive Attack, probably not realising the bands’ recent links. Visually, this is interesting too, Massaquoi's Cocoa Sugar hat, Bankole’s bare chest and dance moves, and it gets the first-time listeners into the sound textures blasting from the stage.
