A band consisting of Amy Winehouse, Nitin Sawhney and Floating Points collaborators, is always going to make great music. Hejira do that and then some.
Beautiful arrangements and stunningly delicate vocals create the deep trademark sound of this unmissable London music outfit, which effortlessly combines jazz, indie and soul. In recent months the band have won the coveted PRS Momentum Artist Award, played their own Boiler Room session live from London, toured Algeria and headlined London Refugee Week. Their latest album, Thread of Gold was released in Spring 2019 to critical acclaim as they performed across Europe.
We invited Hejira to Belfast for a small show in 2017 and we were completely blown away. We are delighted to welcome this truly remarkable band back to the city, this time during Brilliant Corners!
