Laura Mvula live from Maida Vale

Gilles broadcasts live from the legendary Maida Vale studios in West London, with a very special live session from Laura Mvula.

Following on from October's 6Music Live show featuring a session from Portico Quartet , this week Gilles returns to the legendary studios for another special broadcast in front of a studio audience. This time, Gilles is joined by the prodigiously talented soul singer, Laura Mvula, whose first two singles 'She' and 'Green Garden' have featured heavily in Gilles' recent playlists.

Hailing from Birmingham, Laura's classically trained technique, combined with her Caribbean background has created a sound that has turned heads, coming 4th in the BBC Sound Of 2013 poll as well as being nominated for the Brits Critics Choice Award, all before her debut album has been released.
