Both vocalists started writing their own material a few years back; Aleka, a Romanian musician based in Dublin, always wanted to bridge the gap between different music genres, a mix of Latin grooves and Oriental modes combined into a contemporary jazz setting can be heard in her originals. Her project also includes arrangements of Michael Jackson and Nick Drake.

Ruba, a Palestinian musician based in Dublin, will be performing her original music in both Arabic and English. Each song in the set tells a story and reveals both the fragility and strength of the vocalist. Ruba’s music is a mix of jazz with a Middle Eastern vibe.
