Wednesday 12th What Happened to Agnes @ Stockroom 7.30pm
'What Happened to Agnes' brings to life the vivid imagination of singer and story-teller Nishla Smith, as she spins her grandmother’s Malaysian childhood memories into a magic-realist realm of talking tigers, hidden dangers and infinite staircases. Set against the vibrant backdrop of Luca Shaw's hand-painted projections and a stunning piano score from Tom Harris, Nishla's haunting songs bewitch and enchant, drawing the listeners ever deeper into a dark world of lost memories.
Moor Mother/Iceboy Violet/Algernon Cornelius @ The White Hotel, Salford 7.30pm
Moor Mother is touring the world and collaborating prolifically, performing what is described as techno gospel, as it incorporates highly politicised poetry and black holes of sound that chart centuries of abuse against black people. I can’t adequately describe the depth and pertinence of what she’s doing but this is a must.

24h Feb – Extra Soul Perception @ 24 Kitchen Street
Africa Oyé and 24 Kitchen Street will present the Liverpool debut of Extra Soul Perception on 24th February; a collaborative project exploring new tangents in soul music with eight innovative artists.
In November 2019, the artists from Kenya, Uganda and the UK spent a week in Nairobi together making an album at Supersonic Africa.
The result was a spread of music that reflected the range of backgrounds, interests and skills in the group; from acapella harmonies, soft spoken word, transcendental gqom, razor sharp swahili rap, bumping broken beat and beguiling RnB.
The PMS team's recommendations as presented on the programme.
