    THURSDAY LINE UP

    Sarathy x Danalogue
    Fehdah
    Pouya Ehsaei x Yelfris Valdes

    In a new musical era where both artists and audiences alike create and engage with music that transcends genre, Between The Lines brings together artists that collectively push those boundaries under one roof.

    Sarathy x Danalogue

    Tabla player and percussionist Sarathy Korwar (Ninja Tune / Leaf Label) & electronic musician Dan Leavers AKA Danalogue (Comet Is Coming / Soccer 96) join forces in a cosmos journey powered by improvisation and electronic skulduggery, in advance of of Sarathy’s new album More Arriving – out on the Leaf Label in June 2019. Brought together by a mutual love of the offbeat, psychedelic and analogue, they promise an evening of interplay and experimentation.

    Fehdah

    An eclectic songwriter who draws on her love of Wassoulou music, forging an entirely new take on electro-soul. Following the success of her debut EP, Like No Other, she has since delved deeper in the direction of the title track of this EP, producing a pioneering sound that she describes as “Sahelian-Electrosoul”. Her latest single, Saharakungoh, is a vocally rich, heavily syncopated and lyrically vulnerable love song – with more singles to come in 2019. A new and cohesive moulding of contemporary electronic and traditional instrumentation which is aligned with today’s paradigm of the 21st century Afrofuturist.

    Pouya Ehsaei x Binker Golding 

    Pouya Ehsaei is an Iranian artist residing in London. He has been involved in different projects and collaborations with performers, dancers, and musicians.

He has a PhD in Music and an MA in Music Technology from University of York, and is part of the Cuban/Iranian band Ariwo as well as leading the Parasang series of collaborations between himself and an array of eclectic musicians in Redon.
