Preview: Global Sunday – Marcos Aganju @ Hootananny (London; Sunday 24th November 2019)

Brazil, Haiti and Western Africa; these are the three founding elements of Marcos Aganju’s music; elements that the Lisbon-based Brazilian guitarist and technology researcher mixes, hybridises and allows to grow together with electronica and hip-hop to create a cultural and rhythmic crossing through the Atlantic Ocean. You can join him…

Preview: Same Wave Musician Series – The Scorpios + Stunflower & Slow Rebelling @ The Post Bar (London; Saturday 23rd November 2019)

An exciting new regular evening is debuting on the global music scene this November in the reasonably new and quirky music venue, The Post Bar – a two-minute walk from Seven Sisters.  The philanthropic event aims to highlight the ongoing issues surrounding migrants and refugees, and raises money for charities…

Artists: Slow Rebelling , Stunflower , The Scorpios

Preview: Nina Miranda, Domenico Lancellotti & Friends @ House of St Barnabas (London; Friday 22nd November)

Two Brazilian musicians who love to explore music, both in geographical and stylistic acceptations, a bunch of talented guests, a scenic venue, and a wandering of notes researching meanings behind art and creativity; not a bad way to spend a Friday evening in late November… TransparenSea, the event organised by…

Artists: Domenico Lancellotti , Harv-inder , Nina Miranda , Senrab

Preview: Amon Tobin (DJ) + Actress + Luke Vibert + Gaijin Blues @ Troxy (London; Saturday 23rd November 2019)

For the first time in three years, legendary producer Amon Tobin is set to shake the Earth in a rare show at Troxy on 23rd November. Tobin is far from a mono-genre musician and has explored an expansive list of musical themes in his seven critically-acclaimed albums, all of which…

Preview: Fanfare Ciocarlia & Taraf de Impex + DJ Sacha Dieu @ Electric Brixton (London; Wednesday 20th November 2019)

Shows like this don’t happen every day. Save plenty of energy, because you will have a really hard time trying to keep your feet on the ground and not be blown away by the Romanian Gypsy brass storm that will batter Electric Brixton in late November. Fanfare Ciocarlia and Taraf…

Artists: Fanfare Ciocarlia , Sacha Dieu , Taraf De Impex

Event Review: We Out Here Festival (Abbots Ripton, Cambridgeshire; Thursday 15th to Sunday 18 August 2019)

An inaugural festival is always going to be packed with risk and suspense, and after the downpour that Friday night experienced, a breath was held in anticipation of Saturday’s events. However, it is with sheer delight I report that the proceedings seemingly went ahead seamlessly. Saturday I have to jump…

Event Review: Wilderness Festival 2019 @ Cornbury Park (Oxfordshire; Thursday 1st to Sunday 4th August 2019]

Situated within close proximity to some of the festival’s increasingly populated hangouts at Wilderness, such as the Atrium, if you happened to stumble upon the Level stage, you were almost guaranteed to be charmed by a constant conveyer belt of talented troubadours within the world music spectrum. There were memorable…

Event Review: Tropical Pressure 2019 @ Mount Pleasant Eco Park (Porthtowan; Friday 12th July to Sunday 14 July 2019)

To bring the Tropics to Cornwall is as complicated as it sounds, but it’s also extremely gratifying. That’s why Tropical Pressure Festival has become a music lover’s dream (whether they are project workers, volunteers, musicians or festival-goers), and that’s how, every July since 2014, the idyllic Mount Pleasant Eco Park…

Event Review: Love Supreme Jazz Festival @ Glynde Place (Glynde, Sussex; Friday 5th to Sunday 7th July 2019)

The glorious Love Supreme returned to the prime Sussex pastures of Glynde for its seventh year, and what a return it was. With such a startling array of talent on offer, it was a mighty challenge to stay in one spot for too long for fear of missing out elsewhere….

Preview: Wilderness Festival @ Cornbury Park (Oxfordshire; Friday 1st to Sunday 4th August 2019)

Contrary to the average UK music festival, Wilderness Festival is equally centred on themes of healthy living, nature and the arts. From sacred nipple adorning, to wild swims and tree play, the festival’s main objective is to fortify the soul, restore the senses and enliven the spirit, by allowing its…

Album Review: Nubiyan Twist – Jungle Run [Strut Records; February 2019]

Jazz has many different guises and, within those guises, a further plethora of textures. It’s one of the traits that sets it apart from other genres, classical music excepted. In the ongoing revival and reinvention of jazz within these shores, there is clearly a surfeit of talent. Nestled in amongst…

Artists: Nubiyan Twist

Album Review: Daxuva & Nina Miranda – Le Jardin [August 2018]

Le Jardin (The Garden) is a soft electro-pop album created in collaboration by Anglo-Brazilian singer Nina Miranda and Brazilian producer Daxuva (Pedro Ferraz) – the debut record under the Daxuva moniker. The album sets itself within a collision; on one side you see the soft, sensual aspects of a garden,…

Artists: Daxuva , Nina Miranda

Album Review: Lokkhi Terra meets Dele Sosimi – Cubafrobeat [Funkiwala Records; June 2018]

The holy trinity of pleasure, music that serves mind, body and soul. Cubafrobeat simultaneously feeds them all. The new Lokkhi Terra and Dele Sosimi collaboration show off jazzy solos to power your intellect, but never detract from the chance to lose yourself to dance. Brought together by pianist Kishon Khan,…

Event Review: Jam on RYE Festival @ Peckham Rye (London; 29th May 2018)

From the first Jamaican rude-boy sound systems of Duke Reid and Prince Buster to Trojan Records of London 1968, ska, rocksteady, reggae and dub sound system culture has thrived in Britain’s black culture and has defined generations and popular trends. A sunny May Bank Holiday saw hundreds take to Peckham Rye…

Event Review: Club To Club Festival 2017 (Turin, Italy; 1st to 7th November 2017)

This year’s Club To Club Festival did not end at 6am on Sunday morning — when its sweaty attendees fled Lingotto under a rain so heavy it was hard to tell if the sun was rising; nor with the free street party Dance Salvario, which has acted as the closing…

Event Review: Ealing Jazz Festival @ Walpole Park (London, 29th July 2017)

Much like a charming village fete with a complimentary cleansing mud bath, Ealing Jazz Festival provided both entertainment and healing from the music and comedy of sliding from one stage to another. Unfortunately for the locals, this was the second week that the Walpole celebrations had been washed out. However,…

Event Review: Love Supreme Festival (Glynde Place, 30th June to 2nd July 2017)

The concept of an outdoor jazz festival hardly conjures images of glitter-filled Glastonbury excitement, a young hip crowd and dance-fuelled elation. However, previously exclusive jazz appears to be undergoing a fashion revolution and the grounds of Glynde Place hinted at this. Love Supreme, the UK’s only three-day greenfield jazz festival…

Interview: Nina Miranda (July 2017)

She finally made the big step. After twenty years of a career successfully spent being the voice of this or that project, Nina Miranda has signed her name on a debut album. As we understood from an interesting chat that we recently had with her, Freedom of Movement is not…

Event Review: Snarky Puppy + Becca Stevens @ Brixton Academy (London, 5th May 2017)

Snarky Puppy is a sonically charged revolution of intelligent, jazz-inspired funk-infused with a dizzying mix of rip-roaring bombastic rock, easing into edgy, new era classical, melancholic electronic (and perfectly blended) world music; a freshly invented and entirely new genre. Lead by bassist, composer and producer Michael League, the 3* time Grammy…

Artists: Becca Stevens , Snarky Puppy
