This summer Flomotion returns to the Royal Opera House with music from Sweden’s Little Dragon and young Japanese spiritual jazz composer, arranger and singer Maki Mannami.
Little Dragon features radiant vocalist Yukimi Nagano and her band of high school friends Erik Bodin (drums), Fredrick Källgren (bass) and Håkan Wirenstrand (keyboards).Together they create perfect summer soul music. As Yukimi herself puts it ‘Little Dragon is a city… trafficlights, fast food-signs, neon, love, loneliness, technology – a city reflected in the middle of a vast ocean.’
Japanese jazz/soul singer Maki Mannami makes a rare UK visit performing tracks from her second album The World of Sense.
Nick Luscombe will host the event and DJ throughout the evening.
Tickets £16, £14 (students and ROH Access Scheme). Standing only.
