Werkha is the project of Mancunian musician and producer Tom A. Leah. After a big year in which his reputation has swiftly spread, this rising talent has now signed to Tru Thoughts and launches his latest EP ‘Beacons’ here at Band On The Wall. Since Werkha unleashed his debut ‘Cube & Puzzle’ EP on Cool Kid Music, in September 2012, the release has become something of an underground sensation, enjoying airplay throughout Europe, most notably from the godfather of world music, Gilles Peterson. If you have yet to sample the delights, expect to hear an infectious fusion of Afrobeat, bass, house, jazz, funk and soul, bound together and brought bang up to date through contemporary electronic production that never stands still 

Werkha is joined by Nottingham resident Harleighblu who released her debut album ‘Forget Me Not’ in October 2013 on Tru Thoughts.
