Kiriki Club flyer

Kiriki Club combine musical flair and a raw, energetic performance style with the dizzy intimacy of a late-night lock-in. Expect songs in different languages, some re-imagined classics, vocal acrobatics and luscious harmonies. The show is a live music event in two halves: the first half offers a more intimate concert style performance with individual or smaller ensemble musical items culminating in a full band extravaganza in the second half! Bringing together a stellar line up of multi-instrumentalists, Kiriki Club make the party happen. Rooted in vintage sounds and styles, Kiriki Club mix 40’s/50’s jumpin’ RnB with exotic sounds from around the world and surprising versions of pop classics. With total disregard for borders, the club membership features players from Wales, Portugal, Austria and Birmingham. They harvest the music of their homelands, pluck the noises of Tejano, Exotica and Klezmer and scrape the soles of Rock ‘n’ Roll. Based in Birmingham, Kiriki Club had the honour of being the first foreign language band to sing on Radio Brum. Describing themselves as ‘expert pigeon hole dodgers and music mashers’, Kiriki Club specialise in playing exotic sounds from across the globe - colliding in Birmingham, UK and swinging all over the place! Kiriki club have taken their quirky, fun and fabulous sounds to venues and festivals across the country and they never fail to thoroughly entertain.
