Wovoka Gentle

Will Stokes

The second of two performances by bands from Seb Fagg’s (C1 2004-09) Yucatan record label took place in the Mem Hall on Saturday 5th March. 

After a sequence of electronic music by Tom Niven (B1 2004-09), Wovoka Gentle (Will Stokes (B1 2003-08), Immie Mason and Ellie Mason) treated us to a performance of high-quality musicianship.

Using a rich mix of electronics, loops, guitars, violin and acoustic percussion, they performed a set of bewitching richness. Intelligent, engaging and with keen attention to detail, their songs wove a beguiling narrative.

The performance was enhanced by Olivia Norris – a dancer with the troupe ‘Stasis’, and by the projection of her film made specifically for Wovoka Gentle’s performances.

Recordings of the band’s music are available from Yucatan Records or iTunes; their music can be heard on SoundCloud, iTunes or Spotify. Or visit their Facebook page.

It’s been great to see and hear the range and quality of ‘OM’ musicians who are being nurtured by Seb Fagg at Yucatan.

Many thanks to them all for performing here this term.
