Project Live brings new talent showcase to Leicester


Project Live brings new talent showcase to Leicester

The gig at 2Funky Music Café, takes place next month…

2Funky Arts is wrapping up its second round of Project Live – a 4-month artist development programme- with a new music showcase in December.

2Funky Arts Director Vijay Mistry:

“We are always amazed by the incredible level of talent that comes through Project LIVE. With each round, we discover more and more amazing artists who are ready to take the first step towards a professional music career”.

Following the success of their earlier Project Live showcase, this event – 2Funky Music Café: Project Live Showcase – will introduce the newest selection of emerging local talent, who will perform fresh, original material alongside a live band.

These artists have been working passionately to create new tracks across Black music genres, that showcase their art, their creativity, and their voices. They have been extremely busy with regular rehearsal sessions, as well as developing other areas of their craft through masterclasses, networking, recording sessions, and performance opportunities.

With help and mentoring from Musical Director Lisa Millett, a Royal Academy of Music graduate, artists are now ready to take their music to the next level, showcasing their versatility and skills. Previous participants have included Queen Milz, who combines raw vocals, heavy beats, infectious hooks & rebellious lyrics. Testament, in part, to our impact, she is currently rising fast, with major exposure on 1Xtra, BBC & the international festival circuit.

Performers taking part at the 2Funky Music Café gig are Lady Affirmation, Blue Celestial, Maakhe, T 0 Soul, Chantelle Marquez, Dulzo The Great and Diegolations. This project is supported using public funding by Arts Council England.
