York Mediale 2018 – Skinny Pelembe + Ola Szmidt

Ouroboros & York Mediale presents:
Skinny Pelembe
+ Ola Szmidt
Tuesday 2nd October, 7.30pm.
Tickets are £7 in advance (more on the door) and are available from Earworm Records, the venue in person or online via See Tickets.

With a sample-hunting, studio-meddling mindset, Skinny Pelembe’s music roams hazy afro-tipped soul with psychedelic tangents. Born in Johannesburg but growing up in Doncaster, he’s a sparkling multi-instrumentalist who blends his production, guitar, singing and MCing to tap into a unique, influence-weaving sound.

Signed to Gilles Peterson’s ever remarkable Brownswood, he’s one to watch out for in 2018.

Support comes from Ola Szmidt; a singer-songwriter, musician, flautist and producer based in York. She is a Steve Reid Award winner, was funded by PRSF, and has been mentored by Four Tet.
