Shookrah

Powered by shimmering synthesizer, a propulsive rhythm section and tempered with two unique and engaging female voices – Cork’s Shookrah trade in a strikingly modern brand of R&B. Proud products of their hyperactive local music scene, the soulful sextet first took to the stage at the Cork Jazz Festival, before bringing their live show to Electric Picnic, Body&Soul, Knockanstockan, Other Voices and the Tiger Dublin Fringe Festival.

Proudly informed by their influences while gleeful dismantling them to suit their own creative impulses, Shookrah’s sound is that of throwback soul coloured by a satisfyingly forward-thinking approach.
