Intro: R&B Edition is set to take place at the London venue on 25 January.

The Jazz Café has announced a show next year which will see performances from three up-and-coming R&B artists. Joining the line-up there’s London-based Eritrean artist Raheaven, who has collaborated with Jay Prince, her vocals featuring on the American rapper and producer’s debut album. Raheaven released her debut EP 2PERSONAL in 2021.

The night will also see a performance from Slow Dance Records-affiliated musician Khazali who blends vocals with four-to-the-floor string led productions. Completing the bill, there’s Essex-based singer Chrissi who draws on pop and soul within her work.

Intro: R&B Edition comes to Camden’s Jazz Café on 25 January and will run from 7pm to 10.30pm. Head to the Jazz Café website for tickets and further information.

Over the past few months, the recently refurbished Jazz Café has seen performances and sets from the likes of Deena Abdelwahed, Rosa Pistola, DJ Assault, Jamz Supernova and Tash LC – the latter two of whom we spoke to about inclusivity, finding balance and self-care.

On the renovations and the venue’s autumn/winter programme, Head of Programming Ruari Few said: “Just like the live program, we want to ensure that rhythmic, percussive and danceable music is on show every week. If we’re offering space to build for scene-leaders like Tash LC, Jamz Supernova, Branko, Shy One and Rosa Pistola, then London’s club scene is going to be in a great place in 10 years time.”
