GRRRL perform Archspace, London for one night only before flying to the Gold Coast to perform at the Closing Celebration of the Commonwealth Games followed by an Australian Tour.

GRRRL is an electronic music collaboration between revolutionary women, brought together by In Place Of War (IPOW), a global organisation that supports artistic creativity in places of conflict as a tool for positive change.

Together, eight influential artists from Brazil, Ghana, Zimbabwe, Venezuela, South Africa, Bangladesh and the UK have worked with Laima Leyton (Mixhell/Soulwax) to create a studio and touring project that fuses together sounds of dark techno, ghetto bass, hip hop, dancehall, reggae, soul and electronica, and tells their collective stories, demonstrating how artistic creativity can conquer conflict.

The band formed as recently as August 2017 and Miro was there to review their gig at Folklore, Hackney.  After a month of sharing ideas online, the GRRRL artists came together in London and collaborated over 4 intense rehearsal days where they created a new body of work which was previewed to a packed audience at London’s Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club, which then saw them go on to headline Freedom Festival Hull and Greenbelt Festival, playing sold out shows in London and Manchester, before being voted Best Live Act of Shambala Festival 2017.

GRRRL perform at Archspace w/support from Shunaji on 10th April. Doors open 7pm and tickets are available here.
