And this time, we want you to set sail with us!How? Join us at Hootananny Brixton on the fourth Sunday of the month, and you’ll take full breaths of Mediterranean air.For the next three months, Rhythm Passport will curate three FREE ENTRY episodes of the Rootmaster music series at the Brixton venue, and we will let it travel to South Europe with three sea-scented, dancy and exciting gigs.*******************************************************************For the first stopover of our Mediterranean musical cruise, we will visit Greece, more precisely Crete, on Sunday 23rd September. Balothizer will bring their Cretan anarchic, as much as traditional, sound to Brixton for a far-out night.The trio, which was formed in London in 2016 by Greek musicians enriching the London music scene, aims to unite the rootsy and archaic vibes of the Greek island and its millennia-old history with distortions and raging arrangements.Their theatrical shows inevitably turn out to be sound experiences and “rocky presentations on Cretan culture”. So, head for Hootananny on Sunday 23rd September and get ready for some incandescent “Cretan music from hell”!
European harbours will welcome the Rhythm Passport sailboat for the following show on the agenda on the 28th October, when Colomboloco will present the full spectrum of South European folk music, from Andalusia to Turkey, stopping over in Southern Italy and Greece.They define their sound as “Mediterranean Gypsy music”, so it’s no wonder that people inescapably dance their gigs away, allured by their upbeat vibes.
last docking for 2018 is on schedule for Sunday 25th November, with Amaraterra spinning the Hootananny’s helm. The third episode of our Rootmaster series will release all the rhythmic and enrapturing power of Southern Italy and Greek traditional music enhanced by a contemporary London twist.Pizzica, tarantella, rebetiko, Mediterranean joie de vivre and London eclectic attitude will tempt Brixton on the last Sunday of November, and there’s no serum that can cure you from the tarantula rhythmic bites: you’ll be heartily doomed to dance until exhaustion.
