Myles Sanko at Lantarenvenster

Attention soul lovers! After having rocked (or sould?) the venue in 2014, 2016 and 2022, Myles Sanko will be back in Rotterdam on Thursday, October 17 at Lantarenraam in collaboration with BIRD.

This lovechild of soul music released his sixth album Let It Unfold in October this year. On this album, Sanko deals with traumas from his childhood and sings about his dreams for the future. Creating the songs was therapeutic and empowering for Sanko: it helped him embrace his vulnerabilities and celebrate his strengths. How does that sound? Expect his usual soul, jazz, hip hop and the rhythmic influences of his Ghanaian roots combined into one catchy soulful sound.

The British singer Myles Sanko is a true soul and jazz man. His roots are in Ghana and France and his music reflects a mix of diverse cultural influences and resilience. His journey started with singing and rapping in the Cambridge nightlife and later as a busker.

With his funky, jazzy and vintage soul he subsequently performed all over the world, including with Gregory Porter and with James Brown's soul diva Martha High. Myles is inspired by great soul artists such as Bill Withers, Otis Redding, Al Green and James Brown. You can hear this style in Myles' debut Born in Black & White, which was released in 2013 and earned him a worldwide fan base - including Gregory Porter.

Please note: (limited number of) seats can only be purchased via Lantaren Windows .
