Hatty and Ellie
the Voice Trio
and some special guests.
Womankind. Often found nurturing and bringing life into being. Expecting Maggie Thatcher, no woman has ever been solely responsible for building tanks, SUV's, missiles, oil wells, nuclear power stations, red Ferraris and porn empires. At this time in our evolution, when we're threatened with the very real and sobering prospect of extinction, it's probably important that we listen a little bit more to the ladies.
That's why Last Mango In Paris has put together an all female bill, featuring over ten acts, plus loads of little moments to get us inspired by women who aren't out to break our hearts, but instead to make us fall in love with the world.
Recently given a standing ovation by Roger Daltrey and called 'a force of nature' by Jimmy Page, Z star has been mending hearts globally for years to come. An East London legend brings her beauty, presence and electricity to Rich Mix for the first time.
A Rich Mix favourite, the 2010 World Beatbox Female Champion makes sounds no other man can.
A new star on the London spoken word scene, Indigo burns brightly. Articulate, intelligent, a fist wrapped in velvet; a voice whose seductive lilt hides hip hop in its heart.
Hatty and Ellie:
Hatty and Ellie have very little online presence. This is because they are probably half way around the world as you are reading this, busking, making friends and drinking limoncello straight from the bottle. Charismatic, endearing and sharp, they've been touted as the 21st century French and Saunders.
The Voice Trio are an acclaimed accapella group whose range sees them bringing songs from around the world to life. Hear Balkan folk tunes, African lullabies and songs from the grandmistress of funk Hildegard von Bingen.
“Two punk soul bitches with energy off the hook, if you want controversy take a second look, we wont give it away, you’ll find out someday, but in the lyrics to our songs, our story hides away”
Sixteen year old Bangladeshi poet whose work has already taken her to Chicago.
Videos by Nobel Peace Prize Winner Jody Willliams, accapella supergroup The Boxettes, and Kanye Wests' choirmistress Yvette Staelens will bravely attempt to teach willing audience members a song, plus up and coming singer songwriters Sam Lindo & Ellie Rose..
The most fun you can have without having sex. An anti-Valentine's event, because Valentine's day is shit. It's a fake festival, with no juicy animistic roots, designed to make you feel bad about yourself. Every day is Valentine's day for people who know how to love themselves
