Live Music Lineup


Sister Cookie

Main Stage, 27 Aug

Sister Cookie
From London via Lagos, charismatic chanteuse SISTER COOKIE takes you on an eclectic excursion into the roots & fruits of black music. Old sounds, new tricks. Sensuous, seductive, and moody. 
As well as possessing a distinctive voice that’s tender and sweet when it needs to be, she is a composer and self-taught pianist who writes honest and raw songs about pain, heartbreak, suffering - all that bad (meaning -good ) stuff.

Born in Lagos , Nigeria towards the end of the 1980s into a music loving household, the lady they now call Sister Cookie was constantly surrounded by a variety of sounds throughout her childhood. From the juju, highlife, reggae and soul sounds favoured by her mother and the jazz LPs in her father’s collection, to the pulsating traditional West African rhythms that served as the background to numerous special occasions and the moving  spirituals that dominated every church service, the would-be chanteuse soaked up an eclectic mix of music.
