Live - in pictures: Sinkane & Young Dreams - Hoxton Bar & Kitchen, London 3/4/13

There were lots of uplifting, upbeat, warm vibes in the air in Hoxton Square tonight.

First on the bill were Young Dreams from Norway (London's chill must seem positively balmy to them). With classic 3-part harmonies underpinned by a tinge of African rhythms they played a polished set that really engaged the audience. Definitely a band that I'd go and see again next time they're in town.

Headliners for the night were Sinkane - currently residents of Brooklyn, NY but with roots from around the globe.

Despite a rather patchy sound mix and intermittent problems with Ahmed Gallab's keyboard they put on a good, if rather truncated, show.

With the wind in their sails and maybe some sunshine outdoors at a festival I imagine that they'll be unstoppable.
