with DJ support from Maya Mitten!
Since their formation in Valencia in 2012, original fusion project Solana has been enchanting listeners with its rhythmically complex and harmonically rich sound inspired by folk traditions from around the world. Taking influence from such diverse greats as Tigran Hamasyan, Kíla, Vicente Amigo and Dhafer Youssef, Solana’s sound is rhythmically complex and harmonically rich. Tamsin (flute/accordion) and Rowen (violin) weave together folk and klezmer inspired melodies. Elio’s Latin, African and reggae influenced drumming and JP’s flamenco guitar are locked together by Henry’s dynamic basslines. The band will be right at home playing to a lively crowd!
Their music ranges boldly from klezmer melodies, tingling tango, exuberant Irish folk and swinging jazz to pumping reggae and lilting Latin […] thoroughly invigorating
They make my spice shelf look boring… an accomplished and colourful album

When not playing music, the members of Solana can be found making chutney, cycling long distances, and correcting people who mispronounce “paella”.
Were delighted to announce that Maya Mitten is stepping in to support Solana. DJ Mr. A. has hurt his back and we wish him a speedy recovering. Maya is excited about coming home for the weekend before she starts her M.A in Fine Art. She’s bringing an eclectic mix for all you groovers. Make sure you book your tickets in advance and tell your mates!
