Hampstead Jazz club Presents MUDIBU for a night of vintage classic soul gems from the 60’s and 70’s with the acclaimed CIYO BROWN TRIO!  A treat for all music and soul lovers!

Born in East Africa, Burundi, Mudibu now lives in London. He left his home-country Burundi at the age of 16 years old, as a victim of War (1993). Following his arrival in the UK, he received a Scholarship from an Oxford-based charity to study in UK (BA Hons Political Science & Economics).

He is a self-taught musician with no formal music education, plays guitar, sings and writes his own songs.  Some people are just born with innate musical prowess and talent and Mudibu is a gifted musician.

Music has been his healing medium and modality of self expression throughout life’s curveballs. As a member of several different bands spanning diverse music genres,  Mudibu’s musical journey takes him from Mantilla (New Orleans funk soul & reggae), Lostchild (Rock pop), Saints Patience (Classic Rock Soul) to the The Jezebel Sextet (Otis Redding Reading Tribute).

Following a 2018 European tour “The BLACKBELTS”,  Mudibu is currently part of a New Southern Stax Soul Outfit/Band (JpBimeni & The BLACKBEATS) that has earned “The Album of the year 2018” With BBC Radio 6.


Acclaimed master of guitar Ciyo Brown is one of HJC’s most popular and frequent Artists and part of what is now a HJC family of talented resident musicians.  Since HJC opened in Nov 2017, Ciyo has presented some of the industry’s most reputable and talented musicians and singers, always delivering a consistent line-up of some of the most celebrated musicians on the live music circuit.

Ciyo’s illustrious musical career celebrates pioneered fusions of jazz and reggae with a successful release of six albums under his own name. The sixth album “Put a little jazz in their lives” expertly unites the beautiful complexity of jazz with the subtle rhythmic undertones of reggae.
