Event Preview: Arsenal of Sounds #3 w/ Amaraterra + Simo Lagnawi & Gnawa London @ Woolwich Works (London; Friday 4th November 2022)

Friday 4th of November at Woolwich Works will be all about the Mediterranean rhythmic connection! 

From the thrum of the tamburello to the clacking of the qraqab, there’s a hidden rhythmical fil-rouge that links the apparently worlds’ apart of pizzica and gnawa.

We are going to pull it out, unfold and dance to it on the third episode of Arsenal of Sounds, with the help of Amaraterra and Simo Lagnawi & Gnawa London.

The two acts are exciting, forward-looking and very London representations of the quintessential Italian and Moroccan traditions. The London residency of musicians has indeed helped them to bring new life and interpretations into those century-old rituals, without losing sight of the entrancing drive and inherent significance.

Join us on Friday 4th November for a Mediterranean crossing, from Southern Italy to Morocco, with the rapturous rhythmical patterns and dance moves of pizzica and gnawa!

Event Review: WOMAD Festival @ Charlton Park (Malmesbury, Wiltshire; Thursday 28th to Sunday 31st July 2022)

After a 3 year wait, and returning on its 40th anniversary, to say there was anticipation around Womad ’22 would be a vast understatement. The line-up played it safe in some respects, with old favourites looming large; but there were bright spots of new musical energy, hungrily met by pent-up…

Album Review: Simo Lagnawi & Gnawa London – Africa Soyo [February 2020]

In recent decades, the music of the Gnawa has transitioned from a repertoire of ritualistic trance-inducing songs – performed exclusively for the adherents of its night-long healing ceremonies – to a more profane yet equally transfixing professional type of music, played on festival stages and in venues the world over. Due not…

Preview: Amaraterra + DJ Aly Prince @ Hootananny (London; Sunday 26th April 2020)

One Sunday night in Autumn 2018, they turned Hootananny upside down with their frenzied pizzica and taranta rhythms. So, we thought it was time to set the tarantula free and let it bite Brixton once again. On the 26th of April, Amaraterra will liberate into South London all the Mediterranean-scented…

Interview: Amaraterra (June 2016)
