Arabella are Lisa & Rami, a professional acoustic duo, playing heartfelt covers of pop anthems, folk tunes and jazz standards. Music is in Lisa's blood; born to parents working in the performing arts industry and having grown up in a household where her grandmother’s motto “every house should have a piano” was taken very seriously. Lisa draws her inspiration from a medley of different sounds. From Amy Winehouse to Bill Withers and Disclosure, you can hear the subtle notes of soul, jazz, electro and RnB flowing into the tracks.  Rami Radi is a musician & producer from South London, who has been performing in various guises since first picking up the guitar as a student with too much time on his hands! He has since worked as a session guitarist and songwriter with acts as varied as Joseph J. Jones & Royce Da 5’9”.  Together, the duo’s stunning vocals and gorgeous guitar work will add a touch of warmth and sophistication to any occasion. And Arabella can provide background music between sets meaning there will always be music playing throughout your event. They can also perform your first dance/a special request for a fee. An amp is provided for vocals and guitar, and Arabella can provide a full PA for an added fee if required. Other optional extras include adding percussion, and evening DJ service and an extra set (or two) if you want to flesh out their performance!
