Preview: Between The Lines w/ Sarathy Korwar, Danalogue, Fehdah, Pouya Ehsaei, Yelfris Valdes @ Corsica Studios (London; Thursday 16th & Friday 17th May 2019)

betweenthelines

Removing the edges and scouting for more freedom, Between The Lines is a new series of live music nights, exploring the musical space between genre boundaries. The first two shows will take place on 16th and 17th May at Corsica Studios and will feature influences from artists that play a range of world music, such as West African Wassalou music to Irish poetry.

The first night will see three sets of musicians play: Sarathy; Danalogue, Fehdah and Pouya Ehsaei; and Yelfris Valdes. Collectively, they will bring a mix of electronics, tabla, Afrofuturism, Wassoulou, and Cuban trumpet.

All players have been brought together by their mutual love of experimentation and playfulness, and it’s hard to predict what route they’ll take on their way to finding that connection. However, what could be more fun than taking away the rules and indulging in a one-night affair with whatever is created on the night.

Album Review: Sarathy Korwar – More Arriving [The Leaf Label; July 2019]

On the list of the worst conversation starters, “Where are you from?” would be right up there. Reducing the person to a Lonely Planet cardboard cut-out is one thing, but when the question is prompted by your accent, complexion or general foreignness, it becomes a euphemism for, “You stick out…

The purity of this Cuban chemistry was the motivation behind the 2016 Manana//Cuba Festival in Santiago de Cuba, the Manana record label, and subsequently this month’s Barbican gig.
