Preview: GRRRL @ Archspace (London; Tuesday 10th April 2018)

GRRRL

Even if named recalling the late 1990s Riot Grrrl movement, GRRRL goes far beyond the usual punk and feminist boundaries. The entirely female-powered band going on stage at Archspace on the 10th of April gives a 360˚ perspective on its inclusive aims, gathering its inspiration and creativity from all four corners of the world.

GRRRL is an ambitious, imaginative, and consciously revolutionary project, which started around a year ago when seven musicians from the UK, West and South Africa, Brazil and South Asia met in London after four months of long-distance artistic relationships and creative exchanges.

They ended up giving life to a unique sold-out show at Ronnie Scott’s. They will arguably do the same in a few weeks’ time in Haggerston, where, with support from Nigerian MC Shunaji, and thanks to the work of non-profit organisation In Place Of War, they will present their debut EP Woyale.

The magnificent seven, who will bring some pure GRRRL power to Archspace, are: London-based rapper and Mercury-prize winner Speech Debelle, South African nu-jazz vocalist Nono Nkoane, British-Bangladeshi singer Sohini Alam, the queen of Zimbabwe hip-hop AWA, the queen of Brazilian dancehall and ragamuffin Lei Di Dai, Ghanaian pop singer/songwriter Wiyaala, and Russian/British/Ghanaian electro DJ and producer Afrodeutsche.

Anyway, they will be honoured if you refer to them as simply: ‘GRRRL’.
