Dylema Collective

Event Has Passed

Last Show: Saturday 23 rd December 2017

The Pheasantry (Chelsea)

This is the infectious blend of groove, swag and often disarming fragility that confronts you as The Dylema Collective oozes their way through their young yet hypnotic set. Drawing on a smorgasbord of musical influences – inevitable considering the diverse backgrounds of its members – you find Russian classicalism and Nigerian Afrobeat meeting Latin American rhythms and old-school soul, all woven into London’s contemporary jazz sound. The inspiring, empowering poetry that flows from Dylema’s lips and effortlessly between these poly-rhythms and sounds makes for an overall magnetic experience, one full of trembling crescendos, tingling intimacy and simpering sexuality.

The Dylema Collective is a “spoken-soul” poetry-music project that loves and infectiously blends all things Neo-Soul, Dope-ass funk, psychedelic Jazz and floaty RnB. Thematically, their feminist poetry addresses matters of race, gender and individuality, values reiterated by the acronym hidden in their name: “Do You. Let Every Man Adapt”. Since curating their first sold-out December 2016 show in London, The D.C's 2017 has been full of adventure: headlining at London’s The Rich Mix, joining award-winning Jazz artists Theon Cross, Nubya Garcia and Moses Boyd at The Jazz Café and completing a 20 date U.K Summer Tour – including a visit to Islington's Union Chapel, independent dreamland Brainchild Arts Festival and multi-award-winning Shambala Festival. They are returning to The Pheasantry with their irresistible showmanship, salacious grooves and deeply moving compositions following their first, sold-out and rather special visit. As they continue honing their craft and developping their immersive live experience, stay tuned for an imminent release of their much anticipated first single .
