I am honoured to be performing my Five Rivers project with my full band on 8 April 2016 as part of the Women in Music Festival presented by Sama Arts Network at the Nehru Centre, London. The festival curated by Jay Visvadeva is a fantastic festival with an incredible line up of women of South Asian origin
Here's a lovely review and some great photos of a fundraising event for Calais refugees I was recently involved in. I performed alongside some wonderful musicians and the comedian Jeremy Hardy hosted by Jamie Renton at Bedroom Bar, London.
I performed 3 songs from my new project - Five Rivers as a trio - with David Wilkins on guitar and Matt Grabham on violin. Hear "Black is the Colour" one of the songs from our rehearsal in preparation for the concert.
