Celebrating Europe: Leïla Martial: Baa Box

The Bread Shed

Representing France in our Celebrating Europe strand, this exhilarating trio is led by Leïla Martial, the most adventurous and experimental of contemporary singers. Leïla is a vocal acrobat who manipulates her already extraordinary voice via live looping and other electronic effects.

She visited mjf in 2017 in duet with the remarkable cellist Valentin Ceccaldi – a festival highlight for all those present, who were mesmerised by Leila’s power, expressive range and sense of exploration. This latest performance with her most recent group will present new material that is theatrical, playful, potent and undeniably French, with no two songs ever the same.

Consistently awe-inspiring, with stellar musicianship at the highest level, the band always leaves audiences spellbound.


Leïla Martial voice, electronics, Pierre Tereygeol guitar, Eric Perez drums
