Andreya Triana, Fink et Bonobo got together for a unique performance to celebrate the 20 years anniversary of their favorite record label: Ninja Tune.
On this occasion, the 3 artists played exclusive versions of Andreya Triana's album Lost Where I Belong (note: Bonobo produced the recording and Fink co-authored 2 tracks with her).
The Centre Pompidou played its part by setting a classy and subdued setting that magnified Andreya's fabulous voice, Simon's grooves and Fink's ever-so-delicate and precise musicianship.
In partnership with our good friends Iastar
Fin Greenall (aka Fink) began his recording career as a producer and DJ on legendary British label Ninja Tune, whose N-Tone sub-label released his Fresh Produce LP back in 1999, which remains an underground trip-hop classic. He honed his skills as a world-class Ninja DJ, remixer, and songwriter by working with the likes of John Legend, Elbow, Ryuichi Sakamoto, Martin Taylor, Robert Belfour, Amy Winehouse and actor Michael Pitt, while realising his strengths as a lyricist, guitarist, and vocalist. In 2006 Fink was reincarnated as Ninja Tune s first ever singer-songwriter, releasing the critically-acclaimed Biscuits for Breakfast LP and supporting Zero 7 on their UK tour in-between his own sold-out headline and festival performances across Europe and North America.more>>>
Fink s follow-up, Distance and Time, was released in October 2007, and is the first artist album produced by Andy Barlow (Lamb). The first single, This is the Thing, was famously used as the backing track to a major television advertising campaign in 2008, bringing Fink s distinctive sound and writing style to a much wider audience than ever before. Immersed in a very personal labour of love, this Bristol-bred artist is forging an exceptional career with insistent, heartfelt songs, bruised basslines, and an achingly soulful voice. Fink and his band continue to tour internationally whenever they are not in the studio writing.
Andreya likes to sing, laugh, dance about, dream, strum her guitar and write songs using preferably good quality stationary...more>>>

Centre Georges Pompidou (French pronunciation: [sɑ̃tʁ ʒɔʁʒ pɔ̃pidu]; also known as the Pompidou Centre in English) is a complex in the Beaubourg area of the 4th arrondissement of Paris, near Les Halles, rue Montorgueil and the Marais. It was designed in the style of high-tech architecture.
It houses the Bibliothèque publique d'information, a vast public library, the Musée National d'Art Moderne which is the largest museum for modern art in Europe, and IRCAM, a centre for music and acoustic research. Because of its location, the Centre is known locally as Beaubourg. It is named after Georges Pompidou, the President of France from 1969 to 1974 who decided its creation, and was officially opened on 31 January 1977 by then-French President Valéry Giscard d'Estaing. The Centre Pompidou has had over 150 million visitors since 1977.
The Centre was designed by the Italian architect Renzo Piano, the British architect couple Richard Rogers and Su Rogers, Gianfranco Franchini, the British structural engineer Edmund Happold (who would later found Buro Happold), and Irish structural engineer Peter Rice.
