News: Let The Music Play (July 2020)

Shakespeare said it all with ‘If music be the food of love, play on’.  Music is the blood that runs through the veins of our very best human experiences. Celebration. Expression. Dance. Evolution.

Event Review: Fatoumata Diawara @ Chalk (Brighton; Wednesday 5th February 2020)

There are some performers that we have the pleasure of seeing on stage who bewitch, beguile and bewilder with their exuberance, their talent and their sheer ability to put on a show. Fatoumata Diawara is one such artist. Born in Ivory Coast to Malian parents and now living in France,…

Event Review: Fatoumata Diawara @ Jazz Cafe (London; 26th March 2018)

A one-off performance for a one-off event. It doesn’t happen too often that we get to enjoy a Fatoumata Diawara gig in London, but on the rare occasions when the Malian musician visits the British capital, her shows are always hard-to-forget experiences. That’s how it went on the 26th of…

Review: Songhoy Blues presents ‘Music in Exile’ @ Roundhouse (London, 21st May 2016)

Although the story behind how Aliou Touré, Garba Touré, Oumar Touré and Nathaneal Dembélé became Songhoy Blues is not all roses — they were forced to fled to the capital Bamako after northern Mali was occupied by jihadists — their music is everything but sorrowful. A sold-out Roundhouse could not…
