French violinist Claire Northey brings an air of the North African coast to the UK. Between trip hop and world music, with looped beats & vocals, Claire’s music is inspired by her time writing for theatre productions in France, Egypt and Morocco. She performs solo or with guest horn player Nick Oakley who features on her debut album Mavromati.
