Steam Down is an artist collective, weekly event and music community based in South London. It was founded by multi-instrumentalist, composer and producer Ahnansé in 2017 to build connection between London based musicians.
Since then, The SD Weekly live-stream has become something of an essential experience for their followers and subscribers on The Floor. Throughout Lockdown 2020 they have kept the spark of spontaneous creativity well and truly alive, despite all the restrictions and limitations, their light has shone for their community and beyond.
Steam Down have been the recipients of two Jazz FM Awards, The Innovation Award and the Live Experience of The Year Award. In addition, Sky News produced a feature on their fundamental role within London’s flourishing Jazz Scene.
They also have a growing international fanbase following their appearance at Bogotá’s renowned Jazz Al Parque Festival. Every performance is a co-creative experience between musicians and audience where everyone's participation matters, regardless of language, background or nationality. Currently, Steam Down is gearing up to their highly anticipated EP, which is due to be released in 2021 under Decca Records.
