Please note, this event takes place at Coal Drops Yard, King’s Cross.
The name Naala means ‘First Daughter’. It comes from a Ghanaian naming ritual; which is intended as a blessing; it means to be a leader, an educator, a guardian and a pioneer.
Naala’s sound is an embodiment of these powerful words: layered and multi-sensory: an electronic contemporary landscape, built from sounds that have been self recorded, processed and produced.
Naala’s songs overflow with the delicate complexities of modern British and African storytelling. A hybrid between electronica and elemental RnB. Music for sharpening the mind and blurring the senses.
For the second time, Kings Place partners with Cubitt Sessions and ventures into the local area, this time in the new shopping district, Coal Drops Yard. The full festival runs from Wednesday 24 July – Sunday 4 August, with 3 days of ‘Kings Place Presents…’ stages, showcasing just a handful of our diverse and eclectic artists, from world music ensemble Kabantu, spectacular sonic theatre with the Perhaps Contraption to high class cabaret and sultry jazz standards from the fast-rising Cherise Adams-Burnett etc. Join us for an electrifying live music programme in one of the largest and most exciting redevelopments in London.
