PNEUMA - Soul Pop Groove Live Act in Leeds

PNEUMA Short Info

Launched in January 2015, PNEUMA are a 10-piece sonic powerhouse from Leeds. We range from a 6 piece act up to a 10 piece. Firmly subscribing to the notion of elegance in numbers, PNEUMA draw influence from bands such as Snarky Puppy and Rudimental in combination with artists such as Kirk Franklin, Erykah Badu, and Robert Glasper amongst many others. Their aims are twofold, to showcase intelligent and exciting popular music to audiences far and wide, and to keep the torch burning bright for live performance in the 21st century.

The word PNEUMA describes someone’s vital creative energy: the literal translation from the ancient Greek is ‘breath’ or ‘soul', words that perfectly describe the fresh, uplifting gospel-inspired sounds of the band.

Amassed in part from the prestigious Leeds College of Music and Leeds School of Music, PNEUMA’s impressive array of musicians each impart their individual quirks, interests and experiences to the band’s distinct sound. PNEUMA’S electric live performances have been labelled as ‘Urban 60s’, seeing the band seamlessly blend the soulful spirit of the 60s, the driving force of contemporary electronic music, the lush atmospheric landscapes of Pink Floyd, and the bold, addictive characteristics of a Pharrell Williams number one hit.
