In July 2019, we welcomed our musical Artist in Residence, Qyräl. These talented musicians blend South American heritage to create a unique sound; one that shapes a moving, esoteric live experience by combining the acoustic with the electronic. Audiences are enchanted by these musicians who weave a spell using voice, sitar, percussion, flutes, synths and hand pans into a magical, floating journey. During their week-long residency, Qyräl performed a 30-minute live show each evening exclusively for guests of The Mandrake, which streamed live @themandrakehotel and on @mandrake_air.
The musicians also created an intimate 2 hour live concert in YOPO, The Mandrake’s restaurant. This live show closed their residency and featured two special guest artists; Huaira, the South American singer known for her collaboration with DJ Nicola Cruz and English singer Carrie Tree who, together, created a very special performance just for The Mandrake.
