Piaffinitee has proven to be the most popular act at the pig finca cafe. It is now always fully booked, with people often booking on the same night for the next performance. Djamilla and Basil create a charged atmosphere with a beautiful, unfaltering performance. Djamillas voice fits wonderfully with Basils powerful and emotional playing and even those unfortunates who have never heard of the great Edith Piaf (and lets face it there are more and more of those about) are drawn into a better time and a better place. Looking forward to the next performance!

"This is fabulous mood music which, like good champagne, is best enjoyed with friends or lovers. Try not to be carried away by Djamila's voice, which comes straight from the boites of Paris."

And I attach the present schedule of the dates I'd like Piaffinity to play here next year.  There are likely to be more added by our guests but if you could confirm these it would be great.  

Kind regards

Piaffinitee were a great success. Thanks for everything. We have received many comments about the performance and everyone enjoyed it very much.

We would like to have you back again next year, will be in touch in the Autumn, hopefully, to firm up any booking.

Best regards,

Dear Artsreach

Just to let you know how much I enjoyed Piaffinitee at Briantspuddle on Saturday. They were excellent, gave us lots of songs and instrumental pieces. Djamila has a beautiful voice, the two instrumentalists were excellent and I can't get the songs out of my head now! I shall certainly go and see them again.
Thank you.
