Friday 30 October – Mishra – Live stream

mishra, poplar union, live in the library online

Mishra are a global folk collective with strong roots in U.K folk, out of which they weave a tight web of intricate, Indian-influenced original music that defies definition and has already brought awards recognition since their formation in 2017….. At the heart of their sound are Kate Griffin’s inimitable voice and clawhammer banjo, which soar above the driving rhythms produced by jazz-folk double bassist Joss Mann-Hazell and renowned tabla player John Ball (Rafiki Jazz, Indus), while multi-instrumentalist Ford Collier weaves an agile counterpoint on low whistle and adds yet more drive on percussion and guitar.

Fascinating stuff… I’m really enjoying Mishra’s blend” – Mark Radcliffe, BBC Radio 2

An airborne amalgam of cross-continental pollinations … More servings please” -Tim Cummings, Songlines Magazine

Brilliantly executed Americana and folk mixed with Indian music… Lovely sound, beautifully sung… Gosh that’s tasty!” -Mike Brocken, BBC Radio Merseyside
