Next up for SUMsessions, we’ve got the graceful YAZ, a captivating singer based in South-East London. French born, Palestinian raised, she grew up listening to traditional Arabic and soul-stirring music, often blending both genres in her song choices and lyrics, drawing inspiration from artists such as Fairouz, Yebba, and icons of Chansons Francaises.

For the next few sessions we’ve have teamed up with the amazing live music promotion Indigo Blue, a collective which gives independent artists the platform they deserve. We’re also hosting an all-night event at the famous Moth Club featuring the artists recorded at the sessions (deets below), make sure to cop a ticket!

A huge thanks to Fabrix for hosting us at the amazing Bottle Factory.
