All eyes (and ears) are on Bristol this weekend, as several venues around the city play host to the 2016 BBC 6Music Festival. I've made a mental note of a few of the names I'm hoping to catch from the comfort of my laptop, though I'm disappointed to read that local boys BEAK> have had to pull out.
I'm not sure how well the Bristol music scene in general will be represented in the festival coverage, though hopefully we'll get to hear a little of what's going down in that neck of the woods. Japanese artist Yoshino Shigihara is based in Bristol for example, operating under the Yama Warashi moniker. Her sound
is an intriguing melange of African influences, free jazz, psychedelia and Bon Odori, a traditional Japanese folk dance music. An EP,
'Moon Zero' is scheduled for March, from which 'No Face' is the first taster.
