Featuring: MasQua, Shem, The Yearners
New Cross Inn Presents...
MasQua is a six-piece ensemble of collaborative musicians who met and became friends at Goldsmiths College, University of London in 2009. Wide-ranging in their diverse influences, musical experiences and multicultural backgrounds, (British, Italian, Burkina Faso and South African). MasQua members use their strong musicianship and stage presence to create live performances that are both intimate and effective.
Their sound mixes homegrown live electronics with acoustic elements touching on pop, folk, and madrigal; this together with a splash of theatrical performance, creates an exotic and entertaining experience for any audience.
Think; mangled maritime rhythms, Afro-Celtic beats, poetic pop melodies adulterated with tales of sirens, treacherous seas and other mythical adventurers. This is the world of 'Yearners'....
