Rodina is playing a special set of songs at the Festival, from the debut album Over the Sun. Originally from Co. Laois in Ireland, then emerging from the diverse Leeds music scene, Rodina has a unique style of her own but has been compared to Morcheeba, Goldfrapp and legendary singer Astrud Gilberto. Over the Sun is a cool blend of chill-out, jazz and pop. With ethereal vocals and depth of production, the selfpenned songs are catchy and embracing. A great way to chill out on the final night of the Festival.

‘a solo singer who embraces acoustica and latino rhythms with a sweet aplomb….. Rodina un-relentlessly emphasizes quality and sweetness. Sort of like an angel holding court in a smokey, chilled underground bar. A classy performance …’ (Manchester Music)
