Zeñel is a hot new trio made up of Zoe Pascal (drums), Noah Stoneman (keys) and Laurence Wilkins (trumpet). Meeting through the young jazz scene in London, this trio (ages 15-16yrs) come together to create original music, applying their jazz improv nature to other more unorthodox influences, such as rock, electro, hip hop, folk and even AfroLusophone.
