Romare / Nabihah Iqbal / Earth Wire
ROMARE (FULL LIVE BAND SET) Archie Fairhurst, known as Romare, began mixing his own music with samples from second hand records before underground label Black Acre signed him in 2012, and put out his first release ‘Meditations on Afrocentrism’. Songs from his second EP ‘Love Songs: Part One' were included on compilations by heavyweights such as Bonobo, Tiga and Gilles Peterson. Debut album 'Projections' won him the album of the year award by DJ Magazine.
“Love Songs: Part Two” shows Romare expanding, deepening and developing his techniques. Bringing his live band to the Leith Theatre in Edinburgh, expect monophonic synthesisers, electric bass, guitars, keyboards and maybe even a recorder and mandolin!
Formerly known as Throwing Shade, Nabihah Iqbal released her debut full-length album “Weighing of the Heart” via Ninja Tune in December 2017. Focusing on live instruments and charting the waters where dance music and pop meet, this show promises to be a special night as part of her European tour.
