The second of five exclusive roof-top gigs presented by the Nest Collective and Southbank Centre.
These acoustic double-bills, performed in The Queen Elizabeth Hall Roof Garden, provide a soundtrack to the London skyline. Recline in meadows of music and admire the finest shepherds of sound. Come equipped with pillows, brollies and an eager ear.
Founded by Trinidadian-Canadian songwriter Drew Gonsalves, Kobo Town is named after the historic neighbourhood in Port-of-Spain where calypso was born.
The group takes the intricate wordplay of classic Caribbean music and runs it through a 21st-century filter. In the world of Kobo Town, calypso, roots reggae, and acoustic instrumentation meet innovative production techniques, social commentary and indie rock attitude.
Nuru Kane's many-sided music is part-Moroccan, part-Senegalese, part-blues, part-whatever else he fancies throwing into the mix.
He is a master of the guimbri, a three-stringed traditional Moroccan bass, and his sound is rooted in gnawa, the Moroccan trance-like spiritual music that seals his signature style – which he calls 'Baye Fall Gnawa'.
Your ticket gives you exclusive access to the garden for the event: please note that there is limited seating (other than the grass) and some views of the musicians may be obscured.
