Jessica's Brother + Intaya + Kintala

  • Balabam 58-60 High Road, Seven Sisters England, N15 6JU United Kingdom (map)

Our weekly event at Balabam in Seven Sisters, with three amazing live acts every Tuesday in the beautiful Balabam, top sound and lights on stage, and delicious food.


London trio Jessica’s Brother is comprised of songwriter Tom Charleston, Jonny Helm (drums, also of The Wave Pictures) and Charlie Higgs (bass, previously of Ramshackle Union Band). Channelling the spirit of the Brothers Grimm to create an otherworldly atmosphere, they weave their motley influences together making a rich and eclectic vision, with nods to Silver Jews, Jason Molina, Nick Cave, Richard Thompson and Neil Young. There are themes of joy, anger and silliness in a carefully crafted world with a colourful cast of characters.  


I N T A Y A - Electronic Ethereal Groove Music. Intaya's sound is a combination of electronic music, jazz, hip-hop, future soul, Afro-Latin influences and psychedelic elements. Formed by singer/producer Pao Pestana and multi instrumentalist/producer Dom Martin, the band is half Venezuelan (Singer and Drummer) and half London (guitarist and keyboardist) and the music reflects this combination. Expect Latin roots electronic groove and space age sonic lushness.  


Sharing a similar love for music, Ida Gutowska and Nici Ridge formed Kintala drawing on their Celtic, and Polish heritage for inspiration to create harmonies whilst celebrating diverse musical language. Having spent time perfecting their style in India and Morocco, they are now based in London and regularly perform and jam with various musicians here.
