In anticipation of her first Auckland show Low Leaf will be at Conch Records this Thursday night from 6pm. Come join us to check out her latest release "Akashaalay" as well as a DJ set.
Dub Temple Records in association with Cosmic Compositions and The Conscious Mic are honoured to present the first Australian and New Zealand tour of the visionary multi-instrumentalist, vocalist, composer, producer and story-teller, LOW LEAF.
LOW LEAF will be bringing her dynamic multi-instrumented one woman live show to the East Coast of Australia and New Zealand in a 10 day tour starting on the 28th of May in Melbourne and finishing on the 7th of June in Auckland. Her live performances will incorporate electric harp, keys, beats, samples, effects and vocals into a spontaneous expression of her unique musical story. The tour will feature new music from Low Leaf’s new album AKASHAALAY released on April 29th through label Fresh Selects.
The tour includes performances at the Melbourne and Wellington Jazz Festivals and a double headliner show with Nai Palm of Melbourne's Hiatus Kaiyote. A roster of Dub Temple artists and accomplished LA MC Zeroh and NZ soulful vocalist Noah Slee, will be providing support along this ceremonious tour.
Hailing from LA with Filipino roots, LOW LEAF began her musical journey as a child with classical piano training which formed the foundation of her explorations into the harp, synths, voice, guitar and subsequently Hip Hop and Electronic music.
LOW LEAF is steeped in LA beat tradition and a prevailing psychedelic spirit of the West-Coast. Her music flows freely through many spaces, from love ballads to soulful 2-step, solo harp pieces to folk and of course beats to bass.
A central philosophy of universal oneness, threads its way through her creations, keeping true to the transcendental approach of artists such as Sun Ra, Carlos Nino, Pasta Groove, Georgia Anne Muldrow and Mia Doi Todd.
Having performed alongside Robert Glasper, Jose Gonzalez and Mark De-Clive Lowe in 2014 already, LOW LEAF is making her mark as a cutting edge live performer like no other.
