The Dyr Sister + Nujumi
The Dyr Sister
The Dyr Sister returns to the Adelphi for a double headline show presenting fellow contemporary folk artist Daniel Merrill, who is performing with his solo project Nujumi. This will be Daniels third return to The Adelphi Club, having performed here before with his band Dead Rat Orchestra in projects such as Tyburnia, and Free Folk in Brexit Britain.
The Dyr Sister’s Fairy-tales for the Modern Gentleman is an ever-growing compendium of anti-ballads chronicling the banality of modern existence.
Combining contemporary folk with post-hiphop and electronic music genres the Dyr Sisters songs are delivered with driving percussive beats via a backdrop of strings including Viola/Guitar (Sally Currie), Harp (Stephanie Halsey) and Bass Guitar (Sarah Shiels) and layered with haunting and ethereal vocal harmonies. This is a devastatingly beautiful expression of what it means to be alive and kicking and still telling tales in these bleak times.
Nujumi is the solo project of Daniel Merrill, a composer, and multi-instrumentalist based in New Cairo, Egypt. Best known for his work with the prominent free folk ensemble Dead Rat Orchestra, Nujumi showcases Daniel’s talents as a solo artist, blending folk instruments with electronic elements to create a unique and immersive listening experience. The proceeds of Dans tour will go towards supporting the humanitarian needs of refugees fleeing the Sudan crisis and arriving into Egypt.
