WWA 2016 // Introducing: The Super Band
December 3, 2015
For 2016 Gilles has revealed plans for a very special one-off “super-band” curation, bringing artists who have never before performed together onto one stage. The set will feature guests including the previously announced Kamasi Washington and Leron Thomas, and today we confirm Mercury-award nominee and all round musical marvel, Eska, not only as an additional guest performer but also official Musical Director of the collaboration.
Enjoying much success following the release of her long anticipated and critically acclaimed debut solo record, “ESKA”, she will be working together with Gilles on song selections from each guest performer and fresh arrangements of all tracks. Joining the Super Band set up will also be drummer, composer, producer and electronic musician Moses Boyd.
The rest of the line up announced so far includes Little Simz, Henry Wu Presents Yussef Kamaal, Deft and newly announced Josey Rebelle on the DJ bill.
