With melodies collected over the past 5 years of travels in and out of the jungle that is London, Mikele’s sounds will take you from hectic space storms through cosmic landscapes to the tranquillity of a Japanese garden.
Featuring virtuoso John Dip Silas on piano and the fearless Terence Ling on drums.
