GuilFest 2011 - Lineup

Mel and The Elements

“Mel and The Elements” are a loose crew of musician scallywags, led by Mel and involving musicians of different styles and feel, that meld into a sound that Mel spits over. This years spells are provided by Melaniejane (vocals/rap/guitar), Jams (cayon/guitar) and George (Bass/Guitar).The three combine Acoustic Latin Folk Urban Rap with conscious and life felt messages, with the odd Ecuadorian folk tune slipped in for good measure. Melaniejane has performed as a DnB MC, featured as a vocalist on labels such as Fullcycle and Passenger, as well as being front women for protest band “Pinstickers”. Jams also a former Pinsticker has played with the likes of Cocos Lovers, The Pharaohs, Clan Mac and Late November. George, also a singer/songwriter and well travelled soul has spent many years playing in Brazil with a samba orchestra invigorating his Latin flex. With his calm approach to life and music, Jams’ crazy erratic energies and Mel’s vibrant ecstatic vibes, make for a set not to be missed.
