Dubcentral supports Friends of Irise presents: My Big Fat Swingin’ Ska Night
BIG, BIG THANKS TO FRIENDS OF IRISE FOR INVITING US TO PLAY AT THIS EVENT !
After the success of My Big Fat Gypsy Folk Night 3 we’re back and this time we’re bringing you even more funk, soul, reggae, world beats but this time we’re chucking in some electro swing and ska to really get you moving. Another night of musical talent, jewellery to buy and pants to protest in. THE way to celebrate the end of exams. All in the name of charity.
Irise is a small charity and research group that works to support the education and empowerment of women and girls in East Africa.
It was founded in 2011 in response to Kenyan school girls’ accounts of their experiences of menstruation and its impact on their school attendance. Since then we have been working to develop a replicable and sustainable solution to this issue. Our goal is a world where no girl is held back by her period.
The Jenova Collective
Electro Swing / Swing DnB / House / Disco / Breaks / Ghetto Funk
Fresh faces amongst the swing scene, it’s easy to forget that these two 90’s kids have been collaborating for barely a year, and yet have managed to stamp their bouncy, pumping sound in a host of major UK cities and festivals and have even played Berlin’s biggest Electro Swing night! Most recently this dynamic duo have expanded The Jenova Collective into a 7 piece live band, combining their bass heavy production elements with live sounds of guitar, sax, drums, bass and vocals.
