Howff Music

howff /haʊf/. A favourite meeting place or haunt, especially a pub.

Welcome to The Howff, Bella’s lounge for the lockdown. Listen to our playlists here.

In the Howff tonight we have a radioplay, a cancelled exhibition, a french artist from Lost Map and an isolation poem.

Our featured artist is Clémentine March a London-based French singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. Her debut album Le Continent launched in January 2020.

According to Lost Map: “Clémentine characterises herself as “an alt-rock teenager from the 90s,” yet one who studied classical guitar from a young age, and followed her love of Vila Lobos, Caetano Veloso and more to Brazil for two years in her 20s, where she became immersed in choro, samba and traditional Brazilian genres. Sung in four languages – English, French, Portuguese and Spanish – and influenced by everything from Nirvana to Milton Nascimento, Clémentine’s melodically idiosyncratic and joyfully wild music embodies her nomadic spirit …”

Enjoy!
