For one night only half-English producer, singer and percussionistMo Kolours is set to perform on our shores at the next Red Bull Sound Select curated by Young Gifted & Broke (Y.G.B).

Shipping in direct from the UK the half-Mauritian, half-English producer, singer and percussionist’s sound consists of mixing soul, dub, hip-hop and other various electronic styles.

Raised on the likes of Jimi Hendrix, Lee Perry and A Tribe Called Quest while remaining ever curious about his Indian Ocean roots Mo’s self-titled debut album displays dazzling inventiveness and joyous spirit.

Support for the show includes Esther Stephens & The Means, Groeni, & Lapis, for your listening pleasure on the night as well as live art from D-Side as an added treat.

Here is an excerpt about what to expect about the show from Y.G.B’s Tom Scott:

“Your name will be on the door. The bar will not serve Cody’s. You will be able to actually hear the music, and it will start before the leg cramps. You can close your eyes if you want. You can open them. You can do whatever the funk you want with them. You made them. You can use them to look at whoever you want without them asking if there’s a problem with them.

You will not be asked to raise your hands, throw your hands, or shake your hands. In fact, if anyone tells you what to do with your hands at this gig I will personally cut mine off.”

Doors open at 9pm for this gig and RSVP does not guarantee you entry so make sure you get in early as this one should not be missed.
