I'm excited to share something I've been working on with you. I've curated a series of intimate live music gigs taking place on the last 3 Fridays of this month, in London.
As the days get shorter, nights get chillier and London settles down and braces itself for the winter – I dream of sunny days, vibrant colours and the soulful energy that I feel, back home.
Black History Month is the perfect occasion to launch the Sundown Sessions – conceived in the Afri-love spirit of celebrating the work of amazing African and diaspora creatives.
Join me and engage with inspired musicians who, will transport us to faraway lands. Featuring resident act Sirena Riley and Tom Donald; Adriano Adewale (Friday 16th), Namvula (Friday 23rd), Muntu Valdo (Friday 30th), with Djs Africathy and Zezi Ifore.
See the links at the bottom of this post for interviews with Adriano and Muntu.
The Sessions will take place at Tigmus HQ in Islington. Tigmus is an online platform that exists to make it easier for artists to find the best venues and make money from playing live music. They have the biggest online database of venues across the UK and Europe – from pubs and theatres to cafes, homes and warehouses.
Expect to be transported to lands far away!
The venue is a really intimate space (think of a living room) so, tickets will go fast. Here are the links to book:
I hope to see you there!
