Kadam/Pulse and the Tagore Centre bring a festival of voice and movement derived from Bengal.

 

The weekend opens with Newanderthal - a world music project led by Ansuman Biswas, and Lokkhi Terra, a musical collective featured recently at the London Jazz Festival, whose music stretches from Bangladeshi folk tunes to Cuban rumba via Afro-beats. The evening is further enriched by stunning odissi dancer Khavita Kaur, and poet Jean Riley.


Newanderthal features Ansuman Biswas, Malcolm Darwen, Tom Green and Haymanot Tesfa. They create a potent blend of esraj-accompanied Ethiopian and Bengali song forms, with mbira patterns derived from Steve Reich and jazz-infused bass riffs.

Album Review: Lokkhi Terra – Cubangla [Funkiwala Records; June 2020]

Mother Africa’s children do her proud once more in spreading her spirit across what is a rather large diaspora, considering she spent rather a long time beside humanity’s cradle. And just at the moment where it needs some cajoling to get up and stop feeling sorry for itself, in steps…

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