Uprooted Sunshine are very sad to announce that, due to circumstances beyond their control, Uprooted members Esia and Arminda will be leaving Shanghai next week to return to France for an uncertain amount of time. Esia and Arminda have been a huge part of Uprooted Sunshine over the last 3 years and are 2 of the most talented vocalists involved in the Chinese music scene. From holding down the mic at numerous at events at The Shelter for Shanghai By Bus and Sub-Culture, touring all over China with Clive Chin, taking part in the Shanghai Expo and travelling all the way to Almaty, Kazakhstan to recording some of the best material Uprooted has released and featuring on tracks by producers such as Distrupt, Mungo’s HiFi, Doshy, Stagga and more, Esia and Arminda have been a major part of Uprooted Sunshine and have made a big impact on music in Shanghai. Of course, they will both remain members of Uprooted Sunshine whilst back in Europe and the recording will continue, but their live performances with the crew will be sorely missed.
To give them a proper Shanghai send off, Uprooted Sunshine are teaming up with Shanghai Yard for a special edition of one of Uprooted’s, and Shanghai’s, most successful events – One Love! Roots, Dancehall, Reggae, Ska, Jungle, Dubstep and more on the Soundsystem with the full crew en force. Come join us for this very special event and witness the talent of Esia and Arminda for one more time before they return. One Love!
