Soom T (9.45pm)
Headliner Soom T is an Indian artist born and raised in Scotland creating songs within the reggae, hip hop, folk, electronic and dub genres. Focused on activist intent and spiritual enlightenment, her music experiments with unique sound wave generation and manipulation.
Singer/songwriter/poet ENNÈ has a powerful and soulful voice that blends her cultural influences together to create an original mix of reggae and soul, also drawing inspiration from R&B, Jazz, and Blues. Her ukulele and electric guitars create unique Islandy tones with Caribbean beats. Charismatic, she is known for her freestyling and for being the inventor of Opera Reggae!
David X featuring Bangalore Dreams (8.45pm)
David X, one of the most unique talents from France is a “one-man band” who has practiced beat-boxing for 20 years and mastered all of the possibilities offered by the voice. He can imitate talking drums, bass, congas, darbuka, tabla, and brass, to name just a few!
He will be collaborating with Bangalore Dreams by Jyotsna Srikanth and will be adding his beat boxing to contemporary Indian music. Jyotsna Srikanth is the most sought after South Indian violinist and composer in Europe known for her versatility and ability to collaborate with different genres with seamless ease.
Dhruv Arts, the producer of LIAF was established in London in 2004 to promote the traditional arts of South Asian music, dance, storytelling and visuals.
