    To embody KIN, Alabaster DePlume brings his own interpersonal play-development method, developed at his residency in East London (“absolutely blew my mind” – Gilles Peterson, BBC 6Music; “a reminder of how vital and adventurous music can be” – Laura Barton, The Guardian).

    A large group of individually reknowned artists interpret and accompany each another’s music, in-the-round, with precision and correctness thrown out of the window, and replaced by authenticity and on-the-spot expression and love. The band who have been chosen with personality and background in mind, react to one-another with genuine feeling, in the absence of recital or rules, and the presence of genuine joy.

    Two drum kits, 6 voices, electric guitar, cello, cameo guest poet introduction to the stage. Representatives of London performance art and local Bristol folk/pop. Featuring Hannah Miller (Moulettes); Yoshino (Yama Warashi); Jenny Moore (Mystic Business, Charismatic Megafauna); Ursula Russell (Blue House); Conrad Singh (Evil Usses); Rozi Plain + ntroducing guest artist India Russell.

    Alabaster’s ruthlessly creative approach to experimental pop music delivers eastern-influenced anthems, under spoken elements that attempt to challenge and address divisive rhetoric recently prevalent in society. He enjoys an emphasis on candid interaction, humility and warmth. Based in underground East London’s Total Refreshment Centre, saxophonist and spoken word artist Alabaster has been creating new band each month in his development residency Peach.
