Azuka Extras: Hestina

  • Louis Bluver Theatre at The Drake 302 South Hicks Street Philadelphia, PA, 19102 United States (map)

Stay after the show or swing by the theater for a special musical performance by a Philadelphia-area artist. Open to the public.

Tonight’s featured artist: Hestina


Soulful-folk duo, Hestina, originally from New Orleans have pulled up their roots and planted them right here in Philadelphia! Bringing along their music, guided by and intrinsic, guttural groan - a yearning far beyond themselves. These girls sing with attention-grabbing smoky blues voices. Classically sensual and burlesque. Their stripped-down, ukulele-dominated accompaniment invokes a misty post-rock dream-scape that offers an almost ironic contrast to the primal humanity of the vocals. Add to that, intensely personal lyrics and you get a band that is very hard to turn away from.
