Ladies of Midnight Blue

In this episode, multi-talented Hannabiell Sanders and Yilis del Carmen Suriel speak about their musical and activist journeys, and recall how their band, Ladies of Midnight Blue evolved over the years.

Ladies of Midnight Blue are an Afro-Latin percussion and brass duet. They create a powerful and upbeat fusion of rhythms, weaving combinations of melodic percussion, brass, vocal chants, and mbira. They have performed all over the world and, in the last 12 years, they have been workshop facilitators and guest artists for various projects and residencies, including Opera North’s Resonance Residency. On Saturday 23 March 2024, they will be performing their family show A Love Revolution at the Howard Assembly Room.
