The Breath is guitarist Stuart McCallum and singer Ríoghnach Connolly.

At its heart is Rioghnach’ s deeply soulful, utterly engaging, stop-you-in-your-tracks voice alongside Stuart’s understated brilliance and their exquisitely crafted, personal songs.
Teotima features musicians who play with James Blake, Jordan Rakei, Tricky, Mulatu Astatke, Idris Akamoor, Waaju, and Eliane Correa amongst others.They will be releasing their 2nd LP on First Word records in May 2019.
FOOTSHOOTER // ALLYSHA JOY// ZAKIA
JOHN STREET, 10.30PM
Footshooter is the moniker of London based producer, DJ and musician Barney Whittaker. His style blends skippy, broken beat production with live instrumentation to create an organic, rich sound and he frequently collaborates with emcees, poets and vocalists exploring different tones and moods.
Allysha Joy is best known for performing in the Melbourne Hip Hop collective 30/70, and their success over the past two years has lead her to further challenge her expression in a project of her own. Allysha Joy is pushing boundaries as a keys player, poet, singer and producer, releasing her first solo record in 2018.
Zakia (resident DJ at the Jazz Café and NTS radio) plays spiritual jazz, psychedelic soul and other celestial grooves from across the planet.
