Nostalgia Song Cycle is a premiere set of music and words by Birmingham-based musician and composer Daniel Kemshell. Born from his combined influence of modern songwriters (Frank Ocean, Milton Nascimento) and jazz/improvised music – the set of works utilises the basis of complex human emotions – starting with nostalgia – for their construction.

The evening hosts a new 7-piece ensemble featuring the exciting talents of Berlin-based vocalist, Mirna Bogdanovic (SI/DE) – winner of the 38th DownBeat magazine award for “Outstanding Performances” in the undergraduate category.
