A UK premiere, Ellene Masri performs songs from her critically-acclaimed debut album Music, an acoustic and intimate guitar and piano setting. Her sound combines many international cultural influences: Latin and soul rhythms, with European, Middle Eastern and American melodic sensibilities. She is one of those artists who has to be seen live to completely appreciate her stunning appeal.
Ellene's performance is a double-bill with The Khoury Project.
