It is the final show before our summer break. This, our Peach series continues to expand, each month with new players, new material and bringing new communities together. This is one last chance until autumn to join us in celebration of life, music and performance. The best thing about it is the people –
It is our thrill and blessing to welcome the poet and MC at the head of critically acclaimed London "Afro dub blues" group Benin City, whose work resonates so momentous and deep, with such a growing variety of people. With a voice rich both in tone and experience Idehen works on several fronts, calling out our souls against injustice, and working creatively for dignity and humanity.
Listen to this, and get yourself ready:
A jewel of the international swing and trad underground, she sings with a solid strength and skill balanced on a unique and arresting sincerity. The voice of raucous and untoucheable London trio Whiskey Moon Face, tonight she brings a rare solo performance, and will be accompanied by Alabaster on tenor sax.
Recent footage of his part in this event having gone viral, the saxophonist, composer and spoken word artist continues his monthly development show, working each time with a new group of players, and fresh material. Joined this time by Jonah Brody (of Super Best Friends Club) on keys/koto?, Raphael Desmarets (of Le Colisee and Rozi Plain's band) on elec guitar and others tbc.
