Noushy 4tet is a modern jazz quartet led by trombonist and vocalist Anoushka Nanguy. With a variety of standards and original compositions in their repertoire, this group always delivers an interesting and energised performance. Joined by regular rhythm section collaborators James Mackay (guitar), Ewan Hastie (bass) and Peru Eizagirre (drums), this band has been a platform for Noushy’s original forward thinking tunes and has a bright future as part of the ever growing Glasgow jazz scene.
Anoushka Nanguy, known as Noushy, is a 22-year-old jazz trombonist, vocalist, composer and arranger from Glasgow, Scotland. Graduating in 2021 from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland with a BA Hons Degree in Jazz, she is quickly becoming an in-demand session musician, as well as leading the Noushy 4tet and co-leading the hip-hop jazz collective, Astrosnax. She often plays with other bands – corto.alto, Kobi Onyame and Joshua Elcock Big Band.
