“One of the best evenings I’ve had all summer. Perfect for a Friday night chill after a long week at work, a great starter to a longer evening out on the town, or a way to escape London for a minute and let music jet you off to… wherever you want to be really. A 10/10 thing to do and I’d recommend it to anyone. You could even bring your nan.” EastLDN
Gasper Nali (Malawi) – plays a Babatoni – a 3 meter, one-stringed, home-made bass guitar – with an empty bottle and a stick. It makes the most beautiful and catchy original afro-beats possible. Gasper is a one-man-band, absolutely unlike anything else, more like a one-man-party in fact. And you’re invited.
Ellie Ford – alternative folk artist whose unique expressive vocals are accompanied by her percussive harp playing and eloquent songwriting. Her combination of classical and modern musical styles, of the serene with the guttural, makes for a captivating solo performance.
