February’s Grass Roots session sees an eagerly awaited live performance from Naia – a delightful multi-genre quartet whose varied repertoire primarily comprises funk and neo-soul with subtle Latin accentuations.
Led by the enchanting vocals of Nadine Assam who occasionally doubles up on keys, the band also boasts bassist Lumai Francisco, guitarist Charlie Jackson and drummer Rayan Telleria.
Having already packed out gigs at Tamesis Dock and Ram Jam Records, and with a recent EP release under its belt, Naia appears to be a name for the future.
Join us right after the main event as resident DJ Mr Boogie kicks off proceedings with a palatable playlist.
