Join us and loads of others on 23rd February for a good cause and good music. Little Baobab will be keeping your bellies full as you get to enjoy traditional jazz from the award-winning saxophonist, Camilla George, as well as the world music collective, Grand Union Orchestra. Both will bring you a contemporary spin on their own traditional roots. George is an exceptional saxophone player with a top calibre quartet behind her, and… well, the Grand Union Orchestra need no introduction. Expect a culturally diverse collection of experienced musicians delivering music from all over the globe.
The night is dedicated to raising money for Headway East London, a charity supporting people with brain injuries, and Submit to Love Studios that is based there, who will be selling artwork and merchandise on the evening, including The Colour of Jazz t-shirt collection. Headway East provide day support services and promote culture, arts, food and outdoor activities to the communities they work with.
This event will be special, because of the music, because of the food, but also because it is for a really good cause and is being supported by a lot of good people. Lex Blondin (the man behind Total Refreshment Centre) will be on the decks, charting his way through his exceptional collection of jazz music and global music, Little Baobab are a Hackney institution and will be cooking up a storm in the kitchen, while attendees dance the evening away in an old library turned arts centre by the local community.
Headway East London have been part of some amazing projects, and this is a great way to celebrate an excellent charity. We are really excited to be able to co-promote the event and share an inspirational evening. Hopefully see you all down there.
