DMU students bring back ‘Soul Sessions’ after great success
By Anita Amoah
Three De Montfort University students who organised the event ‘Soul Sessions’ are back to provide another night of good vibes.
Itunu Para-mallam, 20, Tiffannie Roberts, 20 and Lauretta Afful, 21, made an event called ‘Soul Sessions’ when they found that they wanted to provide a “diverse range of creativity” for University students in Leicester.
They successfully did their first ever event on October 20, 2015 and received great feedback from it.
Lauretta Afful said “Soul sessions is an event aiming to bring people together through poetry and sound.”
She also said that it was the “best audience” she had encountered in Leicester and they asked for more nights like ‘Soul Sessions’.
Those who did not get to go to the first event were able to have a glimpse of it from social media outlets such as Twitter and Snapchat and took to Twitter to say that it looked like such a “great night” with “calm vibes”.
Blogs have raved about it describing the artist line up as “unfiltered” and “authentic” with “versatile vocalists” who mean every note they sing; along with ‘rappers/poets who are nothing but sincere about every story told’.
They recently posted a recap of their first event were people expressed how good it was, asking when the next event would be, describing it as a “serious vibe” and as “something different”.
The popularity has resulted in online tickets being sold out for their next event, yet there is still a chance to buy them on the door.
The artists said to be performing are Emmanuel Speaks, Ayo Wrote, Emily Grace, Sabyena Silver, Lisa Labi as well as many others.
The event will be on the 2nd February 2016 and will take place at the Fat Cat, Leicester.
