Peddler Warehouse announce first show of 2022
On 21 May, Peddler Warehouse welcomes Nubiyan Twist back to Sheffield.
The Leeds/London collective will perform live as part of Peddler Warehouse Presents- a series of headline events taking place throughout 2022.
The gig will feature ‘Freedom Fables’, the group’s most accomplished album to date, fusing soul, jazz, hip-hop, afrobeat, Latin, soul, reggae, dance music and global styles to create a unique sound.
Performed by a powerful 10-piece band, the new album is woven around soul searching, cautionary tales and parables for modern life.
Producer and Guitarist for Nubiyan Twist, Tom Excell said: “Freedom Fables reflects on the power of narratives. Each vocalist on this record explores their own memoirs, a freedom of expression underpinning our belief that music is the ultimate narrative for unity.
“The record references a lot of music that we all loved during our formative years; you can hear touches of broken beat, blunted hip hop, highlife, Latin, jazz and UK soul running through the tracks.’
On support, the Peddler team has enlisted the talents of Franz Von, one of the UK’s hottest hip-hop and afrofusion artists, as well as La Rumba, one of Sheffield’s favourite party starters for several years now, complete the bill.
All of this will take place within Peddler Warehouse, one of Sheffield’s best live music venues. Home to Peddler Market, the warehouse is a 7,500 square foot ex-industrial premises turned independent event space. Expect outstanding production and incredible sound, alongside a selection of award-winning street food, craft beers, premium cocktails and fresh sodas.
Tickets are on sale now and can be purchased from £16.50.
