Tuned In London

LIVE MUSIC from all around the world in Rotherhithe, one of the least trodden and most charming neighbourhoods of central London

Finnish Church, Albion St, Rotherhithe
The trio of musicians that make up the recently-formed NAFAS, led by Tunisian Mohamed Ghrab, were all born and raised on the banks of the Mediterranean Sea. Their passion to revive traditional, classical and folk songs from all around the region has them gliding across borders and exploring the different cultures therein, be it Jewish, Arabic, Christian or Berber. NAFAS, ‘Breath’ in Arabic, features a fascinating blend of rhythmic musical styles reflecting the extensive diversity. With Mohamed on oud and accordion, and Turks Ozgur Saygili on saz and guitar and Yalcin Ozdemir on percussion, they will enthrall us with their musical journey, taking us to unexpected places and unearthing fascinating histories.

Tue 7th November, 6.30 (doors 6pm)
St Ethelburga’s Centre for Reconciliation & Peace
78, Bishopsgate, City of London
Fabulous Nicaraguan guitarist and composer, Omar Rios has been dazzling London audiences, since arriving in London four years ago. He has taken his music to Colombia and the Caribbean, to Russia, Europe and the US. For this special evening of traditional Nicaraguan folk music intertwined with his masterful playing infused with flamenco, Arabian and Celtic music, Latin Jazz and classical music influences, Omar will be joined by Artur King (Poland) on bass and Ayoze de Alejandro (Canaries, Spain) on percussion. We are delighted to offer this special collaboration with St Ethelburga’s Centre.

Thu 14th December, 7pm (doors 6.30)
Finnish Church, Albion St, Rotherhithe
Singer-songwriters, Australian-born Neil Lemon & British-born Angie Paice, with their wonderfully complementary vocals, together with bassist Andrew Hodgson, write gorgeous roots-folk songs with a country twist and an international flavour. Joined by Hungarian violinist Peter Huszar and power percussionist, Roger Nunn, their performances exude warmth, drive and sensibility, each song telling a tale of love, life, travels… a great way to reflect back on the year gone by!
