Ludi’s Eye is a new London based band led by vocalist and composer Clara Serra López.
Inspired by grooves from Chicago to Havana, melodies from Erykah Badu to Dayme Arocena and sounds from Jazz to African music, they bring you original music combining body moving rhythm, flowing lines, raw lyrics and improvisation.
Sannie Fox is a singer and guitarist who has released two critically acclaimed albums and will release her third studio album ~ My Soul Got Stranger ~ this year.
With her voracious voice and fingers to her electric guitar, Fox sways across an evolving sonic tapestry of desert blues, soul and psychedelic rock sounds.
In 2015 Fox released her debut solo album entitled Serpente Masjien (double SAMA nominated) which was selected to be featured on the "new artist" page for iTunes UK as well as US upon release.
Fox formed the blues-rock 3-piece machineri and released a self-titled album in 2010 featuring the songs “Big Bad Machine”, “The Searchers” and “Machine I Am”. All album art-work was created by Storm Thorgerson (Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd).
Fox has toured South Africa, UK and Asia and is currently based between UK and South Africa. "...singling out highlights on an album this consistently great seems redundant..." - Rolling Stone
Tashkezar present a groovy and refreshing retelling of classics, lesser known gems and original music from the Arabian Middle-East, from Turkey and Greece and from the Balkans. They are a 7-piece super- band with members from Egypt, Uzbekistan, France and the UK. Their transcultural vibes and explosive fusion sound takes in powerful Mediterranean rhythms, mesmerising Arabic vocals and
melodies, punchy Balkan horns and floor-shaking bass lines. Be ready to dance. Opa! Led by Mariam Ali, an Egyptian-Montenegrin singer songwriter, Tashkezar takes their audience on a mellifluous ride with their lineup of lead female and male vocals, violin, Greek bouzouki, trombone, electric bass with darbuka and cajon percussion. Their debut EP “Tannura” has been aired on BBC 6 Music and their previous gigs include Boomtown Fair, Henley Festival, Purbeck Valley Folk Festival, Cairo Jazz Club and Hootannany Brixton.
All this from the confines of Tottenham's own secret garden, Styx, where you can sit by its patented water feature and enjoy a Tropical Spritz, while all this musical culture washes over you.
