The powerful and original fusion between the Caribbean voodoo melodies and rhythms, and the 70’sUS blues rock; the shock between Moonlight’s powerful and rebellious voice and the tension of saturated guitars … the voodoo trance in a new and explosive style!

Moonlight Benjamin releases in 2018 a new personal project and a third album, focused this time to more electric music, supported by guitarist and arranger Matthis Pascaud.

In this first ever visit to the UK, Moonlight Benjamin brings her music infused with voodoo to play from her CDs – MOUVMAN (2011), MEMWAN DEFALKE (2013), SILTANE (2018),

VORTEX FUNDRAISING T-SHIRTS:

March 2 2018 two iconic musicians and old friends Dave Holland and Evan Parker joined forces in a fundraiser to show, as well as give their support to the Vortex Jazz Club – a fine institution that has help many a musician at the start of their career. The club has existed without any core funding after its establishment by founder David Mossman over twenty-five years ago. The club needs financial help to keep its operations going. We hope you will show your support by taking out a membership, coming to gigs or donating. You can make a donation by clicking the “donate” tab. We also have some new fundraising T-shirts with a fab design that was commissioned by Tim Berne (Snake Oil) with graphics by Steve Byram.
