TETES DE POIS
ROOTS ARENA STAGE - SATURDAY 13th JULY
Têtes de Pois are a seven-piece instrumental band based in Leeds, performing exciting original music influenced by genres including jazz, hip-hop and afro-beat. The band formed in 2016 at the Leeds College of Music, where they met while studying on the Jazz course; they soon began gigging around Leeds through the independent Leeds based music collective, ‘Tight Lines’.
Soon enough, Têtes de Pois started to attract attention and were lucky enough to support London bands Sumochief and Ezra Collective. Since then they have headlined the Hootenanny and the 100 Club, performed at some of the countries most renowned Jazz festivals, including Manchester Jazz Festival & Love Supreme Festival and supported international jazz saxophonist and rapper ‘Soweto Kinch’.
