GABRIELA EVA & BASE MOSQUITO
Gabriela Eva is an up-and-coming singer/songwriter from London with an eclectic sound, comprising stylistic elements of jazz, funk, and soul, with a Spanish-tinged guitar sound.
She's been performing from a young age and is emerging on the festival circuit, with gigs at Latitude and a number of smaller festivals under her belt. A free-spirited musician and traveller, she has performed to audiences from Spain to Shanghai, and is currently working with EMI and Alibi Records in the USA.
Gabriela's sleek vocals, coupled with understated, tasteful guitar touches make for a fresh and distinctive sound. Ventures into the realm of electronically produced tracks are equally interesting: the imaginative rendition of 'Over the Rainbow' is a testament to her creativity, even if it could do with a slightly more professional mixdown. In a sense though, the low-fi quality contributes to a feeling of raw intimacy. On the night she will be joined by producer Base Mosquito for a electronic show.
Experimental ethno-jazz group Jazoo from Slovenia. Since its formation, the band has stubbornly insisted on maintaining its musical style, journeying and developing as they tour Europe and the world. The cult musical cast, who are unique, original and write all the music they play, shatter the boundaries of music forms, blending modern experimental sounds with European jazz. The influences of Archie Shepp, Omar Sosa and the Esbjörn Svensson Trio are clearly present. The music is eclectic, diverse and highly listenable, and yet also unpredictable and free. Although the music may lure the listener into a state of hypnosis, it does not foster a feeling of numbness. By using unusual harmonies and complex polyrhythms, the cast take their listeners on a magical voyage of their music.
