We’re excited to host some really compelling shows coming at the Small World Centre in the next few weeks, beginning Friday with Moskitto Bar. The trio sees accordionist Tangi Ropars (famous for his role in Lemon Bucket Orketstra and his eccentric sunglasses) join forces with percussionist and singer Ahmed Moneka and Yura Rafaliuk on Tsymbaly, the Ukrainian dulcimer. A musical journey from Baghdad to Brittany, via Legadzine, their’s is a truly ‘son fraiche’, with lots of surprises.
Next Thursday, November 3rd, Thomas Carbou and Patrick Graham will blend spontaneous improvisation, electronic looping, Brazilian and Indian musical influences, to create both ecstatic groove pieces and dream-like soundscapes. This supremely talented duo uses an array of instruments, including custom 8-string guitar and a wide array of percussion that are augmented by hypnotic vocals, samplers and laptop. Email firstname.lastname@example.org with “Carbou/ Graham” in the title, and we will randomly draw a winner for a pair of two tickets for the show.
After a summer hiatus, the fall launch of our GLOBETROTTER series takes place Saturday the 5th and we’re delighted to feature the debut party for a burgeoning international label. Founded earlier this year, ORIENT ART is one of the finer purveyors of a lush and sensual sound bridging traditional and modern electronic music. The evening brings together a collective of some of the finest artists in the scene.
And the following weekend marks the return of Zimbabwe’s greatest voice, when Oliver Mtukudzi plays at the Opera House. A major party is expected!
