Josephine and the Artizans

The Artizans have mastered the merging of classical and modern, resulting in an authentic blend of old and new; and have challenged basic music genres to create their own label of sound.

Josephine & The Artizans are a London based HipHopera band that consist of classical strings, operatic vocals, heavy beats and energetic rap. Classically trained Josephine was growing increasingly tired of the cultural gap between the pop-scene and classical world so she decided to create something which is neither classical or commercial, but a blend of both.

Josephine & The Artizans have performed a flurry of live shows this summer including festivals Glastonbury, Latitude, Sound Unbound, Boomtown Fair and many more. During live performances the band’s energy is infectious: audiences dance, jump and join in with moves and lyrical hooks. The band have previously wowed crowds across the UK at festivals including WOMAD, NASS, Boardmasters and Standon Calling.

JATA’s YouTube video views total over 450k and have appeared on London Live, ITV News as well as highlighted by BBC Introducing, BBC 3 Counties, BBC Radio 6, Talk Radio and Premier Radio.

The group have also been creating a buzz with their unforgettable live show in their hometown, London, with performances on the main stage at the massive O2 Islington, the legendary Bush Hall, Under the Bridge, Brixton’s award winning Hootananny and Camden’s world famous Jazz Café.

“JATA never cease to amaze me with their unique mix of stylised hip-hop, frantic rap, and symphonised opera; it’s like mixing Beethoven with Dizzee Rascal.” – Adam not Eve

“It’s off the chain, awesome in fact.” – Bearly Rambling
