Sunday 24 September
11am–4.30pm Soweto Kinch & Jon Sterckx
Jazz & Hip Hop meets World Percussion.
The Collab Sessions are part of Selfridges 'Music Matters' Campaign - a campaign to raise awareness of the fact that many music venues around the UK are being closed down. As part of this campaign, stores across UK will be hosting live music events.
The Collab Sessions: Come and see two artists from two very different genres come together to create a unique track.
The Collab Sessions are innovative and exciting meetings of minds, which will see two artists from different genres working together to create a new track – live on stage.
There will be four collaborations – on September 23, 24, 30 and October 1 – and the artists will be challenged to fuse their sounds over five hours on the Selfridges Band Stand and eventually perform their new track live at 4pm.
Kinch, who has won two MOBO awards and two BBC Jazz Awards, and is also renowned as a hip hop MC and producer, will be in store on September 24, where he will join world music percussionist Jon Sterckx to create a truly unique track as part of the Collab Sessions.
Followed at 4.30 by Birmingham Does Bhangra event.
Curated by Beatfreeks / Young Giant. Beatfreeks is a movement of people and companies using creativity to empower people to challenge themselves and the world they find themselves in.
