Insta sessions #7: Saili Katebe

Last night we celebrated our 5th birthday with a special online gig, featuring all of our acts on the same bill for the first time. We managed to broadcast the Zoom meeting live on Facebook, but unfortunately the YouTube broadcast didn’t work – so apologies if you were left stranded by that!

Anyway, the gig was a huge success, and at the time of typing, the Facebook video has had over 3.6k views. If you missed out and want to watch back, you can now stream the gig in its entirety on Facebook, YouTube (below) and IGTV. I hope you enjoy it, and thanks a mill to everybody that tuned in live.

It’s been a crazy 5 years of Nymphs & Thugs so far, but we’re only just getting started…
