Joining us at our Industry Weekend is @anjelodisons!
Extraordinarily gifted; with words that are wise beyond his years, here is a talent that is undeniably overspilling with heart and soul. 22 year old Anjelo Disons from South London has arrived with a collective of musicians that really put London sounds on the map.
Anjelo’s performances are always an experience, entertaining crowds from Boomtown Festival to The Jazz Cafe and Southbank Centre to XOYO. The phenomenal blend of his unique vocals and virtuoso live band are unmissable.
Deanna is a leading force for contemporary poetry having performed and facilitated across five continents to critical acclaim.
With poetry and performance commissions from Adidas, St Paul’s Cathedral, BBC Sport, and FIFA, Deanna facilitates poetry lectures at UWE and tutors at School of Communication Arts. Most notably her poem ‘If’ was read by Serena Williams for International Womens day 2020.
Shunaji is a music producer, rapper and vocalist hailing from Rome and currently based in London. She adopts experimental approaches to blend jazz-influenced hip-hop with gloaming trip-hop and a touch of soulful synthesizer funk.
Her releases have been acclaimed within independent music scenes in the UK and abroad, as she pushes the boundaries of mainstream music. She is the recipient of multiple awards including the PRS Woman Make Music fund, Help Musicians’ Do It Differently and MOBO awards, and Sound and Music’s Interpreting Isolation.
Shunaji has performed internationally and across the UK, including festivals like Glastonbury Festival, Love Supreme, We Out Here and Wilderness.
