Sounds of the World brings critically acclaimed global musicians to Woolwich.
Join them on August 18 for the fifth event in the series and experience a night of explosive rhythms and hypnotic melody lines that will take you out of London and around the world.
The headline performance comes from the Night, a Kathmandu-based folk band which focuses on using rarely played Nepali instruments, creating new sounds rooted in Nepali heritage.
The second act of the evening comes from Amharic singer and traditional krar player (Ethiopian lyre) Haymanot Tesfa, accompanied by percussionist Ansuman Biswas.
Haymanot’s music is inspired by the ancient landscapes and meditative social and religious music of her Ethiopian roots.
Audiences are invited to interact with the artists after the performances through a live Q&A session, providing an opportunity to learn about the performers’ artistic journeys and musical styles.
Food will be available for sale at the events.
Date: Saturday, August 18 Times: 7pm-11pm
Location: The Tramshed, 51-53 Woolwich New Road,
