'Friday Night Jive' presents —
Friday 1st June- Small Seeds, Huddersfield
What better way is there to ring in the first day of summer holidays than with this lovely night of music and groovin' Oh YA.
Mamilah originated in Leeds in early 2017, amongst a group of musicians from all corners of the UK and Ireland.Their awareness of the commonly misused umbrella term 'Neo-Soul' for any modern R&B/Soul sparked the Mamilah flame, a flame that strives to exude a more traditional soulful blend. Inspired by artists such as Judith Hill, Stevie Wonder, Nubian Twist and Aretha Franklin, they bring a fresh twist on what it is to be soul.
Since their inception, they have played in Leeds most reputable venues such as the Belgrave Music Hall, Smokestacks, The Brudenell Social Club, and The Wardrobe; alongside Leeds heavyweights Têtes de Pois and Necktr, and Manchester group Children Of Zeus. They are confirmed to play Camden Assembly, Manchester Jazz Festival and the BBC Introducing stage at Long Division Festival in summer ’18 amongst various other nationwide dates.
Their newest release ‘Sundrips’ is a powerful ballad that brings back nostalgic Soul inflections whilst maintaining a fresh and organic sound, recording has just begun for a 4 track EP to be released in summer '18.
