Saturday 3rd March Hara Katsiki

Hara Katsiki has become more than a regular, she has indelibly become a part of the Le Faubourg family now, after many years playing weekends for us in the lounge bar. We love her moody blended lounge music, sexy disco beats and skilled electronic stylings. Her sounds are solid but sexy and laced with memories from heady nights on the Greek Islands and many of Europe’s greatest clubs, festivals and events. Her style was developed in the Athens club scene and the foundations of her music today remain in moody electronic blends of lounge, deep house and slow motion disco. She also has a very cool Tumblr and of course you can tune in to her magic on soundcloud.
