Hejira

Fri 9 Nov 7:30pm

Meet the latest band to spring from London’s vibrant young music scene.

With members that have recorded with and performed alongside such British greats such as Amy Winehouse, Nitin Sawhney and Floating Points, the group disseminate a rich musical mix that is as much a product of the capital as it is their collective multinational heritage.

Launching their highly anticipated 2nd album Thread of Gold, this will be an exclusive first chance to see it live.

Beautiful arrangement and stunning delicate vocals from lead singer Rahel Debebe-Dessalegne make up the deep trademark sound of this unmissable East London music outfit. Hejira consists of five stellar multi-instrumentalists who switch between two guitars, two bass, three sets of keys, drums and electronics as well as vocals from three of the members of the group.
