The double Grammy Award-winning band, recent recipients of a lifetime achievement MOBO award, progressed from the warehouse scene to global success, with huge hits including ‘Keep On Movin’ (which sold over a million copies in the US alone) and the UK number one single ‘Back To Life (However Do You Want Me)’. Soul II Soul have had a pioneering role for British black music around the world, selling over 10 million albums worldwide. Main man Jazzie B was awarded an OBE for services to music in 2008 and an Ivor Novello Award for Inspiration, as “the man who gave British black music a soul of its own”.
