Romarna Campbell

Shortlisted in 2024 for Jazz Composition

Romarna Campbell’s jazz story begins with the drums. The nomadic spirit of this drummer, producer and composer lives in her jazz and hip-hop-infused music. Romarna honed her craft with Berklee College of Music, Tomorrow’s Warriors and the Notebenders. Her single Inherently Political is a super-charged sonic assault on racism that immediately won favour with Anne Frankenstein, and Jazz FM’s Tony Minvielle and had her crowned by Jamz Supernova as New Name of the Week. Her independently released debut 25 Songs For My 25th Birthday features Soweto Kinch, Tomeka Reid, Sumi Tonooka and Lady Sanity and takes us deeper into her world of resonant frequencies and conscious vibrations.
