Higher Rhythm presents: Skinny Pelembe
Graduating from Higher Rhythm’s Help Musicians UK and Arts Council England funded, Breakthrough Artist Development programme in 2016, and following his stellar success signing with Brownswood Recordings, playing sell out tours and major festivals, and, being championed by BBC Radio’s Lauren Laverne, Mary Ann Hobbs, Giles Peterson and Tom Ravenscroft (to name but a few...) Higher Rhythm are proud to bring Skinny Pelembe, now cited as one of the UK’s most exciting emerging music artists, back to his home town of Doncaster, for this one-off live date at, CAST.
Tickets for Skinny’s gigs across the UK, sell out quickly, but thanks to Higher Rhythm’s relationship with Youth Music, tickets for this one off event, will be offered free of charge, one per person, to make this gig open to all.
“With a sample-hunting, studio-meddling mindset, Skinny Pelembe’s music roams hazy afro-tipped soul with psychedelic tangents. Born in Johannesburg, 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.” Brownswood Recordings
