Sifaka are a 5-piece Rock N’ Soul band from Leeds. Their music is raw and straight from the heart inspired by the soulful sounds of the Alabama Shakes and the Black Keys and the golden age of jam bands (Traffic, The Band, Grateful Dead).
An integral part of the Leeds music scene, Sifaka have supported Kaiser Chiefs and Pete Doherty at Bingley Music Live, Toureg legends Imarhan at the Brudenell Social Club, and Melt Yourself Down at The Wardrobe. Following a string of UK Festivals (Live at Leeds, Cheltenham Jazz Festival, Bath International Music Festival, HowTheLightGetsIn) Sifaka’s last EP Launch was covered in the New York Times and named BBC Introducing’s Gig of the Week.
Sifaka’s debut album - ‘Once Upon a Time in the North’ - produced by Will Jackson (Pigeon Detectives, Wiz Khalifa, Kaiser Chiefs) will be released on 31st May 2019.
