Playlist: Music To Cut Hair To With Bishi
This weeks playlist is by the unstoppable Bishi.
We only met a few years ago but I think is one of those lucky meetings that just keeps getting better and better.
Bishi is an inspiration to me. Musician, songwriter, artist, audio visual performer, DJ, curator and boss of WITiCH….and all round hotstuff. Bishi will be performing at the 'What is England' festival at the Old Church in Stoke Newington on 20/21 April 2018. She is also supporting Wolfgang Flur, ex-Kraftwerk, on May 11th at the 100 club. This will coincide with the release of her new EP, The Winds of Fate, that she co-produced which is set for release on the 10th of May. Bishi also played the Sitar on the new album by Daphne & The Golden Chord (Daphne Guinness!) and if that’s not enough she’s a guest of Amy Lame on 6 Music this Sunday.
