Gyil player Bex Burch returns with her uniquely energetic and intense vibe, and a line up featuring Ruth Goller (Acoustic Ladyland, Melt Yourself Down, Andreya Triana, Rokia Traore, Bojan Z) on electric bass, and Jim Hart (Marius Neset, Ivo Neame, Wynton Marsalis) on drums.
An edgy mix of African, post-punk and minimalist influences, based around the Gyil (a Dagaare xylophone made of sacred lliga wood), imbued with the music of Steve Reich, Bill Laswell and Arthur Russell, as well as jazz. Their new album ‘Do Not Be Afraid’ is released in January.
“Beautiful .. Dance to it, Make Love to it, Consume it, Listen to it, Stare at the Clouds to it.. That music deserves good reactions!” Iggy Pop
“like Portico Quartet on steroids” Jazzwise
We’re putting on this gig in collaboration with fellow Sheffield-based promoters, PROLE JAZZ, who are also bringing the support line-up in the form of two ace bands: Captain Avery & the Cosmic Triceratops of Intergalactic Peace and Beyond Albedo.
