Clang Sayne & Yama Warashi (duo)

Experimental folk 4tet, Clang Sayne tread an uncharted path between song and sonic improvisation. Their music has been described as "exhilarating in its refusal to conform" (Clive Bell, The Wire Magazine), and "showing an uncategorisable approach to songcraft" (boomkat.co.uk). Led by Laura Hyland (voice, guitar), the group has two internationally acclaimed albums to its name: most recently, 'The Round Soul of the World' (2017), featuring the now well-established Irish lineup of Carolyn Goodwin (woodwinds, voice); Matthew Jacobson (drums, voice) and Judith Ring (cello, voice), and the debut, 'Winterlands' (2009). www.clangsayne.com

Yama Warashi, meaning small child like mountain spirit, are a Bristol based art rock ensemble fronted by Zun Zun Egui’s Yoshino Shigihara. Inspired by Japanese folk dance, free jazz, tribal African music and heavily saturated in psychedelia. Lyrically outlandish and charming, melodically addictive and mythical.
The group have released an EP, and an LP entitled ‘Moon Egg’ on Stolen Body Recordings, both of which have picked up support from BBC Introducing, the British Underground, Radio 3’s Late Junction and extensive plays from BBC6 Music presenters. Their music has featured on Wire Magazine's give away, and has been heavily discussed on the blogosphere including The Skinny and Loud Quite. Live performances include Latitude Festival, Green Man and support slots with the likes of Flamingods, This is the Kit and Dakha Brakha. This evening's set is a stripped-down duo set performance by Yoshino and saxphonist Graeme Smith.
