Sunday Joint Xmas Party: The Sunkissed Child & Guests

Sunday 12 December 2021

Support from LNC3 (Lodder, Nossen & Creighton) & DJ Lubi Jovanovic

So, after 18 months off due to the rona and then our relaunch back in September, we come to our final “Sunday Joint” weekly session at Hifi Club Leeds of 2021. We’ve made it our Christmas Party and we feature one of the hottest new young artists breaking out this year in Leeds – The Sunkissed Child – and her all-star band of next gen Leeds players. As support, we feature our very own Sunday Joint house band LNC3 with the usual guest singers, MCs and musicians.

Yasmina, ‘aka’ The Sunkissed Child, is an artist/vocalist originally from sunny Lebanon in the Middle East but now relocated to not so sunny Leeds where she studies music at Leeds Conservatoire. Through her music and captivating lyrics, Yasmina shares pieces of herself and her life story through a mix of cultures, languages and genres. A place where neo-soul, r’n’b and hip-hop blend naturally with Lebanese, Arabic and Middle Eastern cultural influences bringing some much needed musical sunshine to the cold north of England.

Accompanied by her 8 piece band of next gen Leeds allstar musicians (Oscar Horner drums – Billy Burls percussion – Amanda Nossen electric bass – Jacob Hargreaves keys, Cameron Walker guitar, Adam Wilkin trombone, Joe Van der Mulen saxophone, Lina Holt vocals), many of them have already played on the Sunday Joint stage this autumn with a host of bands including Plantfood, Yusuf Yellow, Lodder Nossen Creighton, The Goddess Collective, State Of Satta and the Naali Collective. Yasmina is inspired by artists such as Erykah Badu and Mac Miller but with her addition of those Arabic/Middle Eastern flavours, she flips that standard neo-soul/hip-hop/r’n’b script into something really fresh and new. Come and check her and the crew out for this last Sunday Joint of 2021 and see what the fuss is about.

Since it’s the final session of 2021, we have to feature our rowdy jazz and beats house band LNC3 aka Jonny Lodder (drums)/Amanda Nossen (electric bass)/Eve Creighton (electric guitar). Since our host/booker/DJ Lubi Jovanovic asked them to come onboard back in September, they’ve been a huge success. Each month and each gig, they featured special guest MCs, singers and musicians and tore up the support slots with eclectic sets ranging from big loud rowdy jazz to left-field underground hip-hop beats, all served up with some proper DIY punk attitude. Tonight, expect more of the unexpected and get down early doors to catch some sparks flying as they do their final Sunday Joint set of 2021.

Once again, our resident DJ and host Lubi Jovanovic will be warming things up before and between bands with his legendary freestyle sets of jazz, soul, samba, afrobeat, funk, reggae, alt-Latin beats and hip-hop. Just like he’s been doing for over 3 decades in Leeds and across the globe. It’s the final session of 2021 before we take a long Christmas break of 6 weeks so if you’ve been loving the vibe at Sunday Joint all autumn, do not miss this one.
