MOSAIQUES is a festival of world culture, celebrating diversity in music, film and art from all over the world. This year's live music line-up for the main shows at Rich Mix will features cutting-edge contemporary music produced in France, UK, Turkey and beyond, with a mix of genres to delight all ears.
For its 16th edition, MOSAIQUES is broadening its scope and expanding its programme to cover two full days of events, across two venues.
In the daytime, MOSAIQUES will be taking over Sonos Studio, just a couple of minutes’ walk from Richmix, for two afternoons of FREE activities: a lunchtime gig by LAURA CAHEN, BLICK BASSY discussing his novel ‘Le Moabi Cinema’, film screenings, listening sessions, as a warm up for the main shows at Rich Mix. Full details to be announced soon.
Rich Mix in East London will remain the core venue for the evening programme, with each of the two nights of the festival - Friday 14th and Saturday 15th October – featuring three different acts:
On Fri 14th VAUDOU GAME will be celebrating the release of their second album of feverish Togo funk, KIDAYÚ. They are accompanied on the bill by uncategorisable, internationalist collective KEFAYA (ahead of the release of their debut album Radio International) and the “Turkish turbo-folk” of THE ODD BEATS.
