SOL3 MIO perform Yellow Bird

4 April 2014, 11:40

Have you discovered opera trio SOL3 MIO? They popped in to the Classic FM studio to give us an exclusive performance of Yellow Bird.

Three classically trained singers, a guitar, and a ukulele - it can only be SOL3 MIO, otherwise known as Pene and Amitai Pati and their cousin Moses. After a month-long tour in New Zealand, the trio couldn't resist a quick visit to Classic FM to say hello ahead of appearing on Charlotte Green's Culture Club this weekend.

Fresh off a flight from the other side of the world, the boys performed Yellow Bird in the Classic FM office, looking out over London's Lecester Square. (Not a hint of jetlag in sight!)

Taken from their self-titled debut album, it's easy to see why Pene, Amitai and Moses have caused such a storm in the southern hemisphere after watching this cheery performance. We look forward to hearing great things from them in the coming year...
