Preview: Borderless Festival @ Theatre Royal Stratford East (London, 27th September to 21st October 2017)

stratford-east

After having spread good vibes and eclectic notes in Battersea, Borderless Festival is back to jazz up Stratford.

The autumn edition of the music festival organised by GOAT will go on stage at Theatre Royal in a few days’ time, with five shows happening between the end of September and late October.

The common denominator of the event, which also distinguished its spring version, is its all-embracing music calendar.

From the Klezmer-Gypsy-Mediterranean and Eastern European intoxicating melodies performed by The Turbans (28th of September) to roots reggae eminence Horace Andy (21st of October), Borderless will once again present sundry music delicacies and wide-ranging soundscapes.  

The 12th of October will be a night entirely dedicated to global beats, electronica, and dancy bass grooves with XOA and Anushka. While, on the 18th of October, the voice is going to monopolise the scene with two London-based intriguing vocal projects called Deep Throat Choir and Some Voices.

Last but not least, the act that we’re going to mention is Nigerian percussionist Sola Akingbola (also known for his Jamiroquai experience). Thanks to the support of his band, Critical Mass, he will enrich the Borderless programme with some West African beats, Afro-funk energy, and Afro-Cuban influences.

The “autumn collection” of Borderless Festival is just a few days away and ready to hit Stratford and your music palate with something to everyone’s liking.
