A cartoon illustration of a woman walking on a mix of the beach and London.

Evelyn, a young woman living in Jamaica, decides to travel with her new husband to England under the promise of exciting new work opportunities. Having settled into life in London, Evelyn realises that her new home isn’t everything she had dreamed of and misses the familiarity of island life.

Presented by Cherise Adams-Burnett, Jazz FM Vocalist of the Year 2019 and Evelyn’s granddaughter, the show explores jazz music and its Caribbean influences through this heart-warming tale, with a live band accompaniment. This is a perfect way for all ages to learn more about the melting pot of influences across the jazz genre.
