Gigi Star and her Vocal Chords of Magic

Presented by Kit Sinclair

Gigi Star fled the comforts of her seaside home to take on the bright lights of London. Five years of slogging it at temp jobs, zero-hour contracts and she’s nothing but a weary fish in an overcrowded bowl. In a desperate attempt to survive and validate her place in the music world, she does something truly radical – She sells her vocal cords of magic to the Devil.

Simply told by Gigi with an atmospheric live score of guitars, loops and maybe a triangle.  This is a raw, dark, funny and touching poetic show that will restore your faith in the power of good old-fashioned storytelling and remind you that life is about the journey, not just the destination.

International Guitar Festival:  Katalin Koltai, Shannon-Latoyah Simon & Clark-Hudrea Duo

One of the most exciting new IGF projects, which was devised during the lockdown is La Leona: Women and the Guitar. New works have been commissioned under the La Leona project, which offers commissions and training for women composers to create guitar music.
Through La Leona, IGF is encouraging young women composers who are taking their early steps in establishing their careers, giving them the opportunity to work through the full creation process, offering support through collaboration with the performer and finally guaranteeing a première and repeat performances in important concert venues, such as Kings Place.
