Joan as a Police Woman, Okay Kaya and Kelsey Lu play at The Hum on Sunday with many other NYC female artists





Joan as a Police Woman, Okay Kaya and Kelsey Lu play at The Hum on Sunday with many other NYC female artists

We've been big fans of Brooklyn based Norvwegian songwriter Okay Kaya since we saw her first video for single 'Damn Gravity,' released in the spring of 2015. We've been missing her live a couple of times (she cancelled a CMJ show on us in 2015, and we didn't cath her at SXSW in 2016, so we won't miss the oportunity to see her at The Deli's sponsored appointment with The Hum, this Sunday April 24th at Greeinpoint's Manhattan Inn, when she will be playing a semi-improvisational set with Aerial East and Kelsey Lu. We are also happy to report that she has released some new material earlier this year, which showcases a welcome orchestral development of her uber-sparse style - check out single Keep On Pushin', streaming below.

Kelsey Lu (pictured) is a NYC based artist we've never covered before that is also worthy of attention. Born in Charlotte, NC, this classically trained cellist plays with Solange among others, although her own music flirts with ambient and experimental tendencies.

At The Hum this Sunday you'll also be able to see  Joan Wasser of Joan As Police Woman (who needs no presentation) in a set with drummer Jordyn Blakely (of Stove) and Noga Shefi of Zula, who will also share the stage with Taiwanese vibraphonist Yuhan Su in a separate set. 

This is the last appointment with The Hum, a series The Deli has been sponsoring for the second year in a row - you can read about past showcase previews here.
