ESKA is the most talked about, revered, internationally known singer you've never heard of. Prepare to be let in on one of music's best kept secrets on the 16th May - as Eska performs live at Rich Mix, one of London’s most loved arts spaces.
With a breathtaking live performance and one of the most memorable voices in the UK right now, Eska hints at folk, soul, psychedelica and even electronica, creating a sound that is completely her own. Teamed with passionate and thought provoking lyrics that create something timeless and pure, this is a show we’re certain you’ll enjoy.
“One of the most important singers in the UK right now” - Gilles Peterson
Having previously collaborated with some of Soundcrash’s favourite live acts including Cinematic Orchestra, Zero 7 and Bobby McFerrin, the latest release ‘Gatekeeper’ is independent of an official release and has already created a buzz; receiving strong radio support from the likes of Gilles Peterson, Lauren Laverne and Jamie Cullum.
Joining us on the night at Rich Mix will be Maxixe, a duo creating electronica-fused pop music with haunting vocals and meandering synths that glide effortlessly over the top of minimal percussive hits and kicks. A delightfully modern twist on the synth-pop genre. We can’t wait to see the pair perform live with their various instruments and props.
