Layla Rutherford with Ensemble Insomnio
Curated by Nala Sinephro
As London-based composer, producer, and musician Layla Rutherford gears up to release her very first record later this year, listeners need to make sure they are fully prepared, for the Somali-British artist’s music will certainly shake them to their core. At Le Guess Who?, Rutherford will start unveiling her celestial wall of sound, which delves into complex sonic dualities in cinematic fashion. Her music, much like the nature Rutherford searches for inspiration, is filled with delicate ebbs and flows. The artist will be performing an arrangement of the record specially made for the Hertz and accompaniment by Utrecht’s Ensemble Insomnio.
