Qbanaa – In the year since she released her debut single Qbanaa has established herself as one of the rising stars of an Irish music scene that is continuing to incorporate new influences, cultures and sounds. The artist’s new single reflects on her own journey, both on a personal and musical level. Written as a swansong for her early twenties, ‘Mundo En Mis Manos / World In My Hands’ details her experience of being prescribed antidepressants at a very early age and then falling into a deep addiction that lasted years. Recovery began in her early twenties, prompted by an life changing incident that would prove to mend previously broken bridges in her life. Singing “I slipped in time, the chains were holding me, to my surprise, revenge doesn’t feel sweet, a butterfly, envuelta en dudas sin razón y vuelan como no hay destinación”, Q realises that wanting revenge on those who’ve wronged her does not bring the expected satisfaction.
Projective, a new collaborative and creative force, comes together for their debut gig in the Green Room, Cork Opera House. This 7 piece group is a diverse pool of musicians and writers that have crafted an original repertoire of RnB, Neo-soul, Jazz and Hip-hop. Having previously collaborated individually with various artists and projects such as Neubrí, SAL, Negro Impacto, Salamay, and many more, projective are now excited to embark on their new journey in original music.
