The former Battles frontman and Brooklyn-based acoustic trio kick off a string of dates at Convergence Festival

A double bill comprising US composer and musician Tyondai Braxton and the American ensemble Dawn of Midi will be performing for five nights (22-26 March), with the first date set to take place at the North London club KOKO as part of Convergence Festival.

Blending together electronic and orchestral elements in his sound, Braxton’s performance will be drawing from his latest album HIVE1 and his 2016 release, the Oranged Out EP

An acoustic trio made up of bassist Aakaash Israni, pianist Amino Belyamani and drummer Qasim Naqvi, Dawn of Midi incorporate elements of North and West African folk into their sonic palette.

Joining them at KOKO are producer Nosaj Thing – who’s created tracks for Kendrick Lamar, Kid Cudi and Chance the Rapper – and celebrated producer Daniel Lanois, who’ll be performing a solo instrumental set. Tickets for the KOKO performances are available to buy here.
