Mamilah are a Leeds based group of musicians, producers, DJs and songwriters. Collectively composing their songs has given way to a whole host of musical influence, walking through genres of soul, jazz, latin music and R&B. Originating from several parts of the UK and Ireland, Mamilah found friendship whilst studying at Leeds College of Music. Within this nurturing space Mamilah found their heart in the sphere of Leeds’ nu-soul scene.
Having shared the stage with luminaries such as KOKOROKO, Kool & The Gang, Yazmin Lacey and Craig Charles as well as getting their hands dirty on the local circuit, Mamilah’s live performance continues to thrive nationally. Summer 2019 saw performances at Boomtown, El Dorado and Virgo Festival, as well as at pioneering grassroots venues such as The Wardrobe, The Hootannany and Band on The Wall.
Their debut EP ‘Moonlight Walking’, independently released in August 2018, quickly followed their first single ‘Sundrips’ and was a catalyst for much of this activity; earning regular airtime on Alan Raw’s BBC Introducing Show in West Yorkshire, being highlighted on his ‘Ones to Watch in 2019’ broadcast, and featured on Bandcamp’s “Best Soul of August 2018” article.
