A night of LIVE MUSIC celebrating our CICAS® artists at The Midi Music Company.
// OP SA!
Bringing their own passionate brand of Balkan music, influenced by the roots of the Serbian Kolo and the Turkish čoček, Op Sa! is an addictive blend of wild beats, gypsy flair and modern sound. Teaming a traditional brass trumpet section with clarinets, saxophone, electric guitars, darabouka and a drum kit, they give a contemporary twist to deep-rooted cultural influences and create an unmistakeably rich sound. You will be mesmerised, compelled to dance and unable to drag yourself away from this lively gypsy party.
// Jay Johnson
A totally unique way of playing the guitar, Jay is now a resident artist at the world-famous Roundhouse venue in London currently working on an EP at Abbey Road Studios.
// Michelle O Faith
Winner of PRS Women Make Music Award.
Something genre-defying. “Michelle O Faith tears up the Pop blueprint,” wrote Hunger of the EP’s lead single, the epic Sleep Through The Fire.
Penning her first lyric aged just 5, at 11, a 90’s baby, Michelle grew up on Pop music – then, aged 10 The Midi Music Company awarded her a scholarship to study Classical Voice at the prestigious Blackheath Conservatoire of the Arts. She is a Classical Pianist, too; and, recently graduated from a Russell Group university with a Bachelor’s in Classical Music.
This life-long affinity for Pop music, with a background of training rooted firmly in Classical, coalesces in Michelle’s distinctive sound.
// James Caspar
Northern rap artist, James has many a tale and is at the start of his music career, we are excited to welcome him to the stage.
