Blending wild horn lines with Afro-Latin groove and experimental textures, COLECTIVA’s thoughtful arrangements are rooted in the sounds of Africa, Latin America and the diaspora, creating a genre the group have affectionately dubbed jazz tropicaliente (hot-tropical-jazz).
Their debut single, Under The, written in collaboration with jazz pianist Maria Grapsa and released in April 2021, received huge global radio plays and DJ support from the likes of Huey Morgan and Jamz Supernova on 6 Music, Jazz FM’s Chris Philips and Tim Garcia, and Toshiro Matsuura and Papaoul on Worldwide FM, amongst many others.
Premiering on Sounds and Colours magazine, the track was supported by Women in Jazz, and was playlisted on Spotify playlists including Music is My Sanctuary’s Jazz – Future Classics, and Colectivo Futuro’s Music Worth Sharing.
2022 is set to be a pivotal year for the project, as they gear up for 2 more single releases with visuals, infusing feminist activism in their campaigns.

Winners of the Latin UK Awards, ‘Best Alternative Act 2019 and Yolanda Drake Award 2021.
