Soothsayers + Arun Ghosh Sextet + Lokkhi Terra
LONDON Rich Mix
35-47 Bethnal Green Road
World jazz hits the Rich Mix stage big time – three great bands, all with new recordings emerging this year.
The deeply soulful afro-dub grooves of Soothsayers define the music of a band that’s attained cult status over the years, whilst Lokkhi Terra take a musical journey from the melas of Bangladesh to the streets of Habana, via Lagos and on to the streets of London.
Performing music from brand new album But Where Are You Really From?, British-Asian clarinettist Arun Ghosh completes the stellar night with his IndoJazz Sextet.
Soothsayers have been around for a long time but have just recently signed to Wah Wah 45s, a label that’s very close to my heart. I saw them play their first gig after the signing at Pop Brixton last Christmas and it was a fantastic show - it’ll be a real treat to see them again.
