Nadine Shah + Rafiki Jazz

Armed with a uniquely rich and soulful voice which, paired with her effortlessly eloquent and arresting lyrics, has earned Nadine Shah an early reputation as a rising, uncompromising talent. The mesmerising singer has constantly challenged her listeners, exploring and dissecting taboo subjects in a graceful and sincere manner.

“When her voice enters, the atmosphere changes. She can make almost anything sound remarkable, or at least interesting, and her sharp, incisive rock songs shimmer with a ripe theatricality every time she opens her mouth”Pitchfork

“Classy is what these passion-drenched yet poised songs are”The Guardian

“If Love Your Dum and Mad floated the idea that Nadine Shah was capable of greatness, then Fast Food confirms this as fact”Drowned In Sound

“Place your bets now: the odds on Shah troubling the mainstream are shortening all the time”The Skinny

Support comes from Rafiki Jazz. Based in Sheffield, Rafiki Jazz are an eight-piece who began as a collaboration between local musicians and migrant and refugee artists, whose lineup spans four continents. Collectively and individually, the band values the oral tradition, musical heritage, innovation & improvisation.
