05.06.2021 - Centrala Presents: Cariss Auburn X Ruth and The Ark
5th June 2021
We’re thrilled to present 2 of the midlands finest: Cariss Auburn and Ruth and The Ark
Cariss Auburn’s soul-pop electronica is genre-bending and confessional. A singer-songwriter and self-taught producer from Wolverhampton, UK, Cariss' first single of 2021, ‘Float’, made a huge splash with praise from The Line of Best Fit, COLORS and gal-dem and spins on BBC 1XTRA & BBC6Music.
Ruth and The Ark
Ruth and The Ark are a collective that sail through funk and blues with the menacing soul voice from band leader Ruth Kokumo. Together they enliven their audience with not just their heavy bass grooves but a fiery energy of empowerment that is hard to put out.
After the whirlwind of sold out shows during 2019 Ruth and The Ark are using this time to record their debut album ‘Drown’ which mixes highly finessed compositions with improvised offshoots that capture their hypnotic live atmosphere.
