Sunday 9 Oct / The Bear Club
Drawn together from across the British Isles on a journey from London - Birmingham - Glasgow, TROPEs musical influences stretch much further afield.
They started out life reworking and pulling around the music of Stevie Wonder, playing their debut
at Mostly Jazz Funk & Soul Festival before the mighty Nile Rodgers & Chic.
TROPE have since gone on to create 'Butterflies & Dragons', their first EP of original music; a heady mix of Soul, Jazz and Hip Hop. A mission, not only to pull together their own influences but craft their own sound and style, has seen comparisons being made to the likes of Hiatus Kaiyote, Brotherly and Heritage Orchestra.
They have been featured on BBC Introducing, made the Bandcamp New & Notable Records section and were recently nominated for 'Best New Artist' alongside The Internet, Dayme A
rocena and Kamasi Washington at the 2016 JAJ Awards in Japan.
