Soothsayers: Sat 9 Oct - 8pm
The South-London ensemble has always been keen to harmonise the different souls of the city together, empowering them with conscious messages promoting social cohesion and combatting every kind of discrimination. Their musical offer moves between reggae and afrobeat, dub and jazz, electronica and Latin influences: a true expression of the diversity of London and the UK social fabric.
Balimaya Project: Sat 16 Oct - 8pm
Led by percussionist Yahael Camara Onono and counting on musicians from Kokoroko and SEED Ensemble, Balimaya Project is an all-star band bringing forward a pan-African cultural mission.
In their music, they present, blend and rework West, Central and African diasporic influences. They do that in their very own way, starting from each band member's roots and background, from Senegal to Jamaica and Ethiopia to Cuba, and adding up jazzy and soulful arrangements.
Bukky Leo & Black Egypt: Sat 23 Oct - 8pm
Bukky is a referential character when it comes to the development and diffusion of styles like afrobeat, afro-jazz and acid-jazz. His career spans five decades and has grown and flourished by treasuring the example and experience of greats like Fela Kuti and Tony Allen. More recently, together with Gilles Peterson, he was one of the architects of the acid-jazz movement.
Carmen Souza: Sat 30 Oct - 7pm
Carmen Souza, award-winning singer-songwriter and instrumentalist, is a reference in the Cape-Verdean music scene. She’s a pioneer, creating a new body of timeless Creole Jazz that undoubtedly will inspire future generations. Souza’s critically-acclaimed career in the Jazz scene spans more than a decade, with several tours around the world and eight albums. Souza, together with her long-time musical partner, Theo Pascal, have managed to imprint ethnicity to Jazz and get it closer to its African roots. Souza´s charisma and earthy virtuoso vocal technique have permitted her to operate far beyond the limits of Jazz as a singer-songwriter – she moves through all genres with ease and grace.
Please note that there is a limit of two tickets per person, per event, except for Catapluf’s Magical Journey which has a limit of four tickets per person.
