Yasmine Giles (piano/vocals) & Peter Giles (bass/vocals) formed their own band Aluna after two years. They then toured UK and abroad extensively, playing the hidden gems on albums from the greatest musicians and singers of the Seventies and beyond. They released their first album of 10 original songs INSIGHTS on 15 December 2021. It was recorded in their analogue studio Planet Giles on 1” analogue tape, a process that took 3 years from start to finish! This talented Duo will play these songs, along with those hidden album gems from artists such as Joni Mitchell, The Doobie Brothers, Steely Dan, Randy Crawford, Barbra Streisand, Sting & Stevie Wonder.

"No frills - but what a voice!
Yasmine sets the tone of a performance on her keyboard.
Great musical feeling, which demonstrates precision and gives colour to the music itself.
Delighted by the sheer perfection of execution and technical mastery."
