Tickets - £5 on the door
Plumm is a hybrid vocalist, multi-instrumentalist, and producer hailing from South London with Welsh heritage. Graduating from the BRIT School and then a SOAS degree in Ethnomusicology specialising in North Indian Classical, Plumm constructs mood-driven soundscapes and gritty timbres. After being invited to play a live set at Maida Vale Studios with Moses Boyd for BBC 1Xtra, playing with Taylor McFerrin at Oslo in Hackney and championed by BBC Introducing London, Plumm is branching into genre-less territories and femme power.
Her records marry a theme of eclecticism in production and musical styles to drive through her powerful and soulful vocals. Dark and eerie, but also warm and rich, Plumm is an eccentric live performer and an active member in the London scene. Her performances evolve through her ever-rotating band, a one-woman vocal pedal show and part of larger collectives such ‘Levitation Orchestra’. She just sold out 2 headline shows at the Jazz Cafe interpreting Massive Attacks’s Blue Lines album.
“She has everything I love in a track, I can hear the rock influence, the soul, the jazz, there’s just so much in it” - Moses Boyd, BBC 1Xtra
“eerie sounds with enchanting, mournful vocals of Plumm” - Jazz Wise
“Her forward thinking sound is a captivating mix of dark jazzy vocals, soulful melodies and towering soundscapes.” Somewhere Soul
“channels the female greats of the past through a rich and eclectic lens, powered by an ever-rotating band of musicians.” - Stamp The Wax
AUKA is the new creative moniker of trombonist, multi-instrumentalist and DJ Viva Msimang. Best known for her boundary-pushing and intuitive approach to music, AUKA's DJ sets are an experimental homage to the mighty continents of Africa, South America, and the beating heart of the diaspora.
She's a regular at The Post Bar, playing with Colectiva and Matters Unknown, and we're excited to have her on the decks for this one!
