GoGo Penguin, one of Rhythm Passport’s favourite piano trios, will be playing in London’s most iconic venue – Royal Albert Hall on 12th of November. Their sound has been labelled as acoustic-electronica, and they draw heavy influences from jazz, glitch and minimalism to deliver their truly inimitable and mesmerising performances.

GoGo Penguin has been compared to Aphex Twin, Submotion Orchestra and Brian Eno, but these comparisons do no justice in defining exactly what you can expect from their concerts. One thing is for sure: it’s music for the heart, head and feet – creating songs that hold a nutritional value for their listeners.

Most recently, they have created their own score to Godfrey Reggio’s cult film Koyaanisqatsi, which has led to raving reviews from critics and fans alike. But at the Royal Albert Hall, it will be their latest album Humdrum Star that will be showcased. This performance will be one of the pinnacles in their career, so you can expect a stellar performance. Certainly not one to be missed for Gogo Penguin fans!

Today, black music is warmth, experimentation, crossbreeding, avant-garde, tradition, and rhythm. Turin’s Jazz Re:Found festival explores these definitions, with a curious and forward thinking vision on music, honouring great names of the past while looking at the most current scenes with a sharp eye and sensitive ear. Spread across seven…
