Her debut album “Source” on Concorde Jazz is a deeply personal collection of sonic mantras to live by offering in which Garcia maps cartographies around the coordinate points of her identity, her family histories, grief, afro-diasporic connections and collectivism. It's about a realization of personal and collective power: the evolution of the saxophonist’s values as she re-connects with herself, her roots and her community.
Garcia digs deep to present an album with a global outlook: from London to Bogota, Caura to Georgetown, it's a record drawing inspiration from the many places Garcia calls home. The title track, “Source” is steamy blend jazz, reggae and afrobeat. The album follows Garcia’s two highly-acclaimed Eps: 2017’s “Nubya’s 5ive” on Jazz Re:Freshed and 2018’s self-released "When We Are". She is also featured on five of the nine tracks on “We Out Here”; the landmark compilation celebrating London’s thriving jazz scene. In 2018, Garcia won the Jazz FM Breakthrough Act of the Year Award and the Sky Arts Breakthrough Act of the Year Award, followed by the 2019 Jazz FM UK Jazz Act of the Year Award.
