Lima Limo Records, a new label collective founded by members of Hejira, present an evening of specially curated music at Kings Place. Showcasing music from Hejira’s forthcoming album and new music from string duo Fran and Flora + a soon to be announced special guest.

Hejira
Meet the latest band to spring from London’s vibrant young music scene: Hejira.

With members that have recorded with and performed alongside such British greats such as Amy Winehouse, Nitin Sawhney and Floating Points, the group disseminate a rich musical mix that is as much a product of the capital as it is their collective multinational heritage.

Beautiful arrangement and stunning delicate vocals from lead singer Rahel Debebe-Dessalegne make up the deep trademark sound of this unmissable East London music outfit. Hejira consists of 5 stellar multi-instrumentalists that switch between 2 guitars, bass, keys, drums and electronics as well as vocals from 3 of the members of the group.

‘Hejira’s music is uncomplicated and beautifully arranged, balancing gorgeous vocal harmonies atop finger-picked guitar melodies and bustling percussion.’ Gilles Peterson

‘Soulful experimental rock unlike anything we’ve heard in a while’ Dummy

‘Stunning performance, totally captured the whole room’ BBC

Fran & Flora
Described as «fiercely passionate» by BBC Radio 3’s Late Junction DJ Max Reinhardt Fran & Flora captivate their audiences with soulful laments, exquisite songs, irresistible dance tunes, and tales of their musical adventures.

This new collaboration between violinist Flora Curzon and folk/experimental cellist Francesca Ter-Berg combines aspects of traditional string music and song from Eastern Europe with original compositions and improvisation. Having travelled across Europe to study with many great masters of Eastern European Roma and Klezmer music Fran & Flora perform this repertoire incorporating their own unique arrangements creating a sound that is both timeless and contemporary.

Fran & Flora embark on this new musical journey together after many years collaborating with groundbreaking artists including Talvin Singh (Mercury Prize Winner), Sam Lee & Friends (BBC Folk Award winner), Hejira, Dunajska Kapelye, the London Klezmer Quartet, Cosmo Sheldrake and Frank London(Klezmatics, US).
