Manchester Folk Festival 2023: Mishra @ Hallé St Peter's

Part of Manchester Folk Festival 2023. Support from Me Lost Me Please note - this show will take place in Victoria Wood Hall within the Hall? St Peter's building. MISHRA In 2022, global-folk band Mishra met international fusion vocalist Deepa Shakthi (formerly Deepa Nair Rasiya). Out of a blossoming musical friendship, they began a collaborative project that takes the soul-stirring euphoria of Deepa?s sufi singing as a starting point, and weaves in the threads of Mishra?s UK folk and Indian classical influences to create a captivating cross-cultural sound. Their joyous performances are a journey of contrasts, from hand-clapping trance-like sufi songs to spacious stillness and reflection.? Over 30 years of studying Indian music and working across genres under the banner of ?world music?, Deepa Shakthi has forged an international reputation as a vocalist and composer, receiving awards and acclaim in the UK and India. She has worked with artists including Kuljit Bhamra and is currently touring with Opera North?s production of Orpheus.? Mishra are Kate Griffin (The Magpies) on banjo and vocals, Ford Collier (The Drystones) on low whistle and percussion, John Ball (Rafiki Jazz) on tabla and santoor, Joss Mann-Hazell (Auka) on double bass, and Alex Lyon on clarinets and vocals. Since forming in 2018, Mishra have won the Christian Raphael prize, received BBC Radio 2 airplay for their albums 'The Loft Tapes' and 'Reclaim', and performed slots at festivals including Cambridge Folk Festival, Beardy, Timber, and more. They are 2022 recipients of Celtic Connections? prestigious ?Danny Kyle? award. Me Lost Me: Me Lost Me delights in experimenting with songwriting and storytelling, creating a beguiling mix of soaring vocals and atmospheric electronics that playfully push the boundaries of genre. Led by Newcastle-based artist Jayne Dent who takes influence from folk, art pop, noise, ambient and improvised music, the project has transformed since 2017 from a solo endeavor to an expanded group; regularly collaborating with acclaimed North-East jazz musicians Faye MacCalman and John Pope. Me Lost Me?s music has been described in The Guardian as ?stripping folk back to its bones while letting its future echoes bleed out?, and by BBC Radio 6?s Tom Robinson as a ?brilliant peculiar noise?. Her third album ?RPG? will be released in July 2023 on Upset the Rhythm. Venue Access - Hall? St Peter?s has three floors (Basement, Ground Floor, First Floor).
