Maria Lindgren better known by her stage name Bahia, is a Swedish born singer and songwriter. Bahia’s roots are from Malmo a city in the south Sweden. She was surrounded by musical influences mainly from her father, a huge Stones fan, who always had five guitars lying around. This came in handy for Bahia as she began strumming one day, she realised that it was as natural to her as eating. Bahia was no stranger to being on stage having attended drama school, she always knew she could sing but would secretly develop this and her song writing, listening to artists such as Eryka Badu and Lauryn Hill for inspiration. It was not until Bahia came to London some years later that she found her sound. Over the past few years Bahia has been gigging at shows and festivals alongside artists such as Contact Play’s Jam Baxter and Dirty Dike, Only Joe, Unit 137 and Mungo’s Hifi. Bahia’s riddim is neo-soul and experimental with a sway of old school Hip-hop and contemporary R&B notes.

"I am Erminia. I also go by the name of BigMouthMina! For the past four years I have been singing my poetry around festivals and had quite the delightful response. I sing with no music, I sing about life and the people I love, I sign about truth and the real goings on around us. My music comes from the soul and my love is to share it with others." A bright light and inspiration to any audience she performs to. A true character and love warrior, there is no one else like her… You almost have to see her to believe…

Captain Grimace is, in truth, just a small, ginger man who has worked out that if you make swear-words rhyme with each other, loudly and in public, people are more likely to give him items of various descriptions, both extant and liminal, with which he can choose to do as he pleases. This is fortunate for him - because in the ranks of fuck-givers, he scores very low indeed. Strap yourselves in for rhythmic tales of piss, mutants and sexual misadventure. But if you give him too many things, he may continue to address himself in the third person and no-one wants that shit on a Sunday.

Shambolique are a very energetic band comprising 3 vocals, guitar, bass and drums. Sounds like a regular setup right. WRONG.. Why? Because as luck would have it, they come pre-cooked at 400° for 9 months and served on a bed of harmonic tomfoolery.
Having formed in Bristol in November 2013, Shambolique began life as an acoustic band, recording their first two demos with drummers Clive Deamer (Portishead/Roni Size), Maff Scott (The Egg) and award winning guitarist James Tomlinson. The band have morphed into a warp speed terrorism of Thrashfunk/Gypsygroove chaos with enough energy to rival a nuclear power plant.
