Sophie Janna sings dark songs from eras past as if they were written yesterday. This “heavenly-voiced Amsterdam singer” (fRoots) combines strong folk songs with great storytelling and unites a clear, stirring voice with percussive playing on guitar, mbira and bodhrán. The person who guesses the correct number of deaths and broken hearts at the end of a gig will get a reward.

Senegalese master musician Jali Fily Cissokho plays the 21 string West African kora/harp. He comes from a long line of griot musicians and creates a unique natural musical blend that spans centuries and continents. He appears with Natureboy (aka Dave Noble), an equally versatile performer who plays guitar, double bass, sitar plus many other instruments.
They effortlessly and successfully blend their own unique sounds together. They have performed together at festivals and concert halls across the UK and even in Fily’s home town Ziguinchor in Senegal.
