Tega Mendes + support
Tega Mendes is a singer, songwriter and pianist based in London. Spending three years in Ghana living with her grandmother as a child, her ears have been tuned to the smooth harmonies and vocal layering from gospel music that would be played every day. This spread into her arrangements as she familiarised herself with the likes of Stevie Wonder and Hiatus Kaiyote. Inspired by the seamless and unbound vocals of Kate Bush and Esperanza Spalding, she is learning to use her voice to it’s full capabilities, whilst captivating the power from her young love of rock musicians such as Chris Cornell (Audioslave) and Jeff Buckley.
