MUSTARD AND THE SILVERFISH
Mustard & The Silverfish are a quintet collective of multi-instrumentalists from London, England. With much of the content initially being conceived as Mustard's brainchildren, the rest of the band bring tasteful contributions to the table. Their EP is available for streaming and download, as are two singles - 'Jubilee Green' and A & B sided 'Shimmering Sun Says.../Better Than Sweater Weather'.
A Yoke is Justin Sicile’s attempt to cope with the general public’s demand for popular songs. He even takes it a step further by giving you the set-list ahead of time which will be available on the Mauvaise Bounce’s Facebook Page. Expect a crowd-pleasing, live Karaoke…. as you bite into a lemon.
RIK VAN DEN BOSCH
Rik writes, sings, and plays his own songs on his acoustic guitar, drawing from a wide influence of styles: original folk and blues sounds from way back, sixties’ rock ’n’ roll grooves, and up-to-the-minute pure rock rhythms - with a bit of gypsy and Spanish influence thrown in for good measure.
Rik is a one-man-band, armed with a variety of tools to create a full and interesting sound, from his slide and harmonica to his incredible vocal range. He is a storyteller, both in and between the songs in his set. Occasionally Rik gets support on stage from a double bass and drums.

Love on the rocks
The place to be
Hailing from Exotic South-East London, Vocalist-bassist Tash Caesar makes melancholic-funk music (with a touch of hope). However, tragically born with a rare phobia of boxes, for health reasons her music can not be put into a box. She believes that music should be many shapes, not to be looked at but to be experienced and never as pretentious as this sentence.
London-based Berber Diffusion creates traditional Moroccan Berber/Amazigh music. Their impressive rhythms and captivating melodies will bring you into unforgettable sounds of Sahara.
Singer/Songwriter, composer, violinist, and pianist. “Music is the art of thinking with sounds”- this is what fascinates me the most about music and its features, therefore I chose this language to express myself and transmit my message to the world, not only to develop professionally and express music’s power, but also to understand others and the world that surrounds me.'
THE GIVING STYLE
The Giving Style is a London-based, Americana-infused indie band. ‘Blue Hair Special’ is the lead track on their four-track EP entitled ‘Monster Tracks for Bread Lovers’.
The Giving Style is the brainchild of singer/guitarist Justin Sicile. Sicile is joined by Tasha Caesar (backing vocals, bass), and Dominic Power (drums). Following the intervention of an acclaimed film and music producer Adam Skinner, their first four tracks are polishing up to the next thing you'll hear on the radio.
The lyrics are twisting and often comical. The guitar riffs are anelectric roar, like a punch up between folk and punk. Add dirty, 80's inspired electronics and keys, and a funky rhythm section, and we've arrived at The Giving Style.

Tibio's first album captures the raw energy of his beginnings together with the maturity of an artist based in London since 2010.
The album, skillfully produced and arranged by the talented Guillaume Mestre, is a fascinating journey through Tibio's cross-cultural influences.
JERRY + THE STAR-BREAKERS
They can sing popular songs and play percussion. He can dance , but is late for the show. This is not a Broadway play, but the reality of Jerry and the Star-breakers , a musical outfit based in Tottenham and very unlikely destined for the stars.
THE PEOPLE OF… BLIGHTY INDIA CAFÉ, TOTTENHAM
THE PEOPLE OF… is a location by location look at newly forming communities within the London area. Blighty India Café is the first in this series of cultural explorations. Talking to customers, staff and business owners often seen there, visual storyteller, Agenda, creates a collection of portraits to be displayed in the café. As a regular there himself, he enjoys the creativity, friendliness and inviting energy that exists between all that use the space and thought it a story worth sharing. If you can’t make the launch at the Blighty India Café on Saturday 28th July 2018 at 6pm, the portraits will remain on display in the café during August. This is the start of a countrywide creation
