Diana to Headline at London’s Famous Jazz Cafe

April 21, 2015 08:45

After a very busy run of the Summer Festivals, Composer and Violinist Diana Yukawa will headline at the world famous Camden Jazz Café.

The composer and solo violinist will take the stage to perform music from her latest album release alongside her producer. Diana will also be support by a great host of truly fantastic musicians, expected to be announced shortly.

The Jazz Cafe is one of London’s most iconic live music venues, and has played host to the likes of Cameo, Lemar, Lana Del Ray, Solomon Burke, Jose Feliciano, Faithless, Bobby Womack, Grandmaster Flash and Mica Paris to name but a few and soon, Diana Yukawa. With a capacity of 420, it is one of London’s premier intimate venue.

Diana comments “I am really pleased to be playing in what feels like my own back garden”. Whilst Diana is a resident of a neighbouring borough of London, Camden is an area she frequents and is incredibly fond of.

Diana is also excited to have recently finished her collaborative album with electronic pioneer John Foxx and Benge. The new group “Ghost Harmonic” have been working at Benge’s MemeTune Studios in Shoreditch, London over the last couple of years, creating the Ghost Harmonic sound - a combination of the purity of Diana Yukawa’s violin with the complexity and textured noise of analogue machinery.

The violinist and composers solo work has been celebrated globally – from having her debut album reach number one in Japan to playing to a sold out Hollywood Bowl with Paul Oakenfold, playing the Dubai World cup and the Royal Albert Hall and collaborating with Craig Armstrong and Jeff Beck. Now Diana brings her revolutionary sound to Camden Jazz Café.

Diana Yukawa is a virtuoso on the violin, writing and performing a new breed of music best described as Electronic Classical.

Diana Confirmed for 2015 Somersault Festival

April 21, 2015 08:34

Diana Yukawa is thrilled to announce her performance at the 2015 Somersault Festival. Now in its 2nd year, Diana will take the stage with her producer to perform her latest music, due for official release later in 2015.

The festival is back for 2015 after its sell-out debut saw a previously unimagined festival concept come to life. Created by the team behind the award-winning Wilderness Festival, Somersault promises five days of stripped-back happiness and blissful outdoor life. With seaside escapades, field trips, trekking, mountain biking, horse riding, surfing, craft and culture, wellbeing and yoga and other excursions augmenting the international music programming.

Long table feasts from headline restaurant partners sit alongside landscape theatre and outdoor spectacles. A riverside wellbeing area nestles close to a secret forest glade where late night parties hum. Alternative circus and street theatre meet international music stars. Archery, falconry and survival camps beside volleyball tournaments.

Somersault’s home is a magical, rambling corner of North Devon. A mystical garden punctuated with lakes, 18th century temples, breath-taking viewpoints and the river Bray. Rolling hillsides, majestic trees, endless skies. The perfect place for camping out under the stars, for adventure, exploring, outdoor pursuits, tree-climbing, nature-loving and seaside adventures. Castle Hill is just 19 miles from Croyde – North Devon’s epic sandy surf beach and village steeped in old-world charm.

The festival vibe is special: inseparable from that uniquely west coast, laid back state of mind. Our partners Surfers Against Sewage are a huge influence and champion our environmental values. The environmental charity protects the UK’s oceans, waves and beaches via community action, campaigning, education and scientific research. They offer a fantastic presence at the festival, co-ordinating off-site surf escapades and curating an onsite programme of music, art, talks and plenty more.
