Leeds Música All Stars
Are an international ensemble of musicians, bringing you a repertoire of Cuban Son and Latin Music, from Buena Vista Social Club to Celina González. Listen here -
Formed in Leeds but originally from Liverpool and the Lake district, Caulder are a duo who play songs arranged around a guitar and percussion. Influenced by anything in between rock and traditional folk music, their songs come together to form a long-cultivated sound, telling stories and asking questions that they don’t know the answers to. Formed through a mutual love of music that has been crafted with thought, this is the music they strive to make.
Hip Hop Improv outfit from Leeds UK.
A hip hop, jazzy jam experience, Space Dolphin aims to bring people together through the love of live music. Born from a mutual love of groove and improvisation, Space Dolphin have been playing up and down the U.K., collaborating with a plethora of talented musicians and MC's expanding their sound, ensuring each performance is as unique and bespoke as the tastes of each collaborative member.
2017 has seen Space Dolphin perform with the likes of Fold for the launch of their new E.P. 'Written In The Sky' and the likes of Motormouf, and Phenician Gold with their monthly hip hop nights 'More Than Soul' and 'Beats & Bars' hosted between Nottingham and Leeds. Space Dolphin will be performing with Dr. Syntax and Pete Cannon in February, and March will see them supporting Rye Shabby at Rough Trade in Nottingham.
Space Dolphin have been busy recording and working and are excited to announce their debut E.P. Hikikomori, which has been released through their label Mind Space Records. Have a listen here - www.soundcloud.com/mindspacerecordsuk/sets/hikikomori
Kibitz perform energetic and soulful music taking inspiration from the haunting melodies of etraditional Eastern European and Klezmer tunes, tinged with gypsy jazz improv and driven by pulsating Middle Eastern darbuka beats. Their music transcends genres, seamlessly blending frenzied Romanian and Turkish dance tunes with heart wrenching Ukrainian and Macedonian epics, always keeping the audience spellbound and dancing like there’s no tomorrow.
This impressive variety of live music will be the perfect warm up to join the rest of our second birthday celebrations, happening all over the venue until 4am. Follow the links below for tickets and more information on the full event.
