15:00: Mbira (Kalimba) Workshop (Free!)

16:00: Poetry / Spoken Word Open Mic

17:00: Acoustic Jam Session

18:00: Creatives' Hangout

Entry is free all day until 10pm, and £5 thereafter.

Places are limited for the marimba and mbira workshops. To avoid disappointment, register here: https://www.tasteofsouthernafrica.com/events/taste-of-southern-africa-festival-2019

MARIMBA WORKSHOP

The African marimba (xylophone) is a wonderful acoustic instrument that is easy to play and great for group participation. It builds on the percussive element of the African drum by enabling harmonious melodic expression. Using soprano, tenor and baritone marimbas to build an ensemble, participants will get the opportunity to learn, play and create rhythms and melodies as a marimba band, and have a great time doing so!

MBIRA WORKSHOP

The African mbira is a beautiful instrument with a relaxing, meditative sound that has traditionally been used in the southern parts of Africa as a spiritual pathway for guidance and healing. In this workshop we will teach using the slightly more contemporary fifteen key F-major mbira called Nyunga Nyunga (or Kalimba) from Zimbabwe. The workshop will include a bit of singing.

SEKURU MAKAMANZI

Sekuru (Gabriel) Makamanzi is a UK based musician who's music is deeply rooted in the traditional sound of the Shona people of Zimbabwe. With his mbira, he shares a sound that has been central in traditional practices in southern Africa for millennia. From a young age, Gabriel knew he wanted to be a musician. After moving to Harare he joined an mbira group called the Mighty Spiders Crew from Mbare, and played at traditional ceremonies with his mentor and tutor, Garikai Tirikoti. Gabriel was recruited by Andy Brown and The Storm, who he toured the UK with in 2002. After settling in Northern Ireland in 2003, he started the Afresh band and set up marimba, mbira and dance workshops in schools and community centres. He soon produced a nine-track album with his band which has been received very well in Zimbabwe and Ireland. He plays with Thomas Mapfumo when he tours in the UK, as well as Shoniwa Shingai of The Noisettes.

OTTO & THE MUTAPA CALLING

Otto & The Mutapa Calling is a lively London based marimba band playing energetic, joyful music from Botswana, South Africa and Zimbabwe, including folk songs, original songs and popular southern African covers. The band's set-up includes soprano, tenor and baritone marimbas, mbira, hosho, drumming and singing, with both traditional and contemporary dances. The marimba band’s sound is full of energy and pulsating rhythms - and their music shares the rich cultures, histories and stories of the people of southern Africa. They’re a band not to be missed - and one of the very few bands of their type in all of Europe!

TSUNGAI TSIKIRAI & FRIENDS

Tsungai Tsikirai is an award winning singer-songwriter and dancer, born and raised in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe, and based in the United Kingdom. Her style and repertoire ranges from traditional southern African to soulful Afro jazz and Afro pop. With her southern African band, Tsungai brings a vibrant combination of dance and music influenced by the legendary sounds of Miriam Makeba, Brenda Fassie and Angélique Kidjo. In 2014 she was awarded Best Music Female Artist 2014 at the ZIMMA Awards, and in 2015 Mporiro Festival awarded Tsungai for her contribution to contemporary music. Tsungai launched her debut album, Rova Ngoma, at The Breaking Boundaries Concert in 2016 which was aimed at promoting cultural diversity, empowering women through arts and community development. She has recently featured at The British Museum’s Faiths In Tune Festival, ZimFest Live and Nottinghill Carnival.

DJ KHANDACOOL

We are thrilled to welcome back the fantastic afro house DJ, DJ KhandaCool - resident DJ at Afrocam, Supremeevents and Grill Yard UK. He is also a radio DJ and co-host of Cava De Kulca.

Thanks for an unbelievable 1st birthday party!

In November we are all doing it again, with a very very special guest. Trust us this is unmissable. (And Free Entry Again all night long)

Born in Nigeria but raised in Peckham, Aadae’s songwriting speaks of family parties spent listening to high life and Afrobeat, long nights in South London dancing to UK garage, and an innate love of the impact pop songwriting can have. Following support from 1Xtra, 6Music, The Fader, The Line Of Best Fit, and more, debut EP ‘Agape’ was released on November 3rd 2017. Her music crosses several continents to deliver something laced with colour, life, and energy. A globe-trotting talent with a magpie-like sense for aural jewels, Aadae sits alongside anyone from Fela Kuti to M.I.A., Santigold to Little Dragon.

Pineapple Pizza Soundsystem will keep you dancing till 2am!

EFG LONDON JAZZ FESTIVAL W/ JZ REPLACEMENT // FWD THINKING JAZZ

As part of the world famous Jazz festival, JZ Replacement with Jamie Murray and Zhenya Strigalev and their intense high energy project take over Grow for a night of forward thinking Jazz.

Think Drum and Bass meets Eastern Euro Folk music, with a touch of John Zorn. The music is inspired by Zhenya and Jamie's musical journeys and studies, and these ideas are combined to create an organic and very original frenetic highly danceable sound. Some people hear Indian influences, some Charlie Parker, some Chris Dave or Michael Brecker.

Zhenya Strigalev (saxophones, electronics) is originally from St Petersburg and has worked with some of today’s most respected musicians (including Eric Harland, Ambrose Akinmusire, Tim Lefebvre and Joseph "Foley" McCreary from Miles Davis fame).

Jamie Murray (drums) A forward thinking and conceptual player, with a solid groove style yet an open minded approach to free experimentation! He has played and recorded with jazz giants including the Sun Ra Arkestra Members Knoel Scott and Cecil Brooks as well as many other musicians in today's Jazz scene.

£7 After 8pm ^^^ Tickets available above ^^^


"Strigalev has long had a knack for conjuring big, frisky statements out of tight starting blocks... Inventive, fluent and thrilling... Serious fun." ★★★★ Evening Standard

“A drummer to watch out for” Rhythm Drummer

"...fascinatingly intense, winding and staccato performance – a real orchestrated duo..." - London Jazz News

"always it's a surreal, impressive brew" - ★★★★ Jazzwise

"A typical Strigalev collision of hip jazz virtuosity and surrealism... Strigalev's alto displays bebop agility, shivery lyricism, or sometimes a bluesy Ornetteish swerves." ★★★★ The Guardian

"Phenomenal drummer Jamie Murray" - Jazzwise

Having just successfully played the Love Supreme festival, the famous Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club in August, Berlin and Vienna as well as at London Jazz Festival and Porto Jazz festival in Portugal. This is a fresh exhilarating partnership not to be missed! In December they had an extended tour in St Petersburg and Moscow and they're currently recording a new album, so catch them live to hear some new tunes and grooves whilst they're fresh!

AWALÉ // LIVE SENEGALESE SOUL

London-based band Awalé returns with a new sound, Senegalese soul!

Biram Seck’s soaring voice evokes messages of love and peace, underpinned by heavenly poly-rhythm groove explorations. Intense and spiritual Sabar Senegalese percussion and Afro-Latin drums conversations, weaving intricate guitar patterns and horn lines with catchy bass riffs. Like a spinning kaleidoscope of sounds, their tunes travel from afrobeat to soul, deep Afro-jazz to Latin. Awalé is on a mission to experience happiness together in these fractured times.

‘A truly magical and uplifting cross-cultural collaboration, bringing together Afro-latin, funk and soul elements with a Senegalese twist. The wonderful voice of Biram Seck and Thibaut Remy’s compositions make for an unmissable combo. Must See!’ - Tim Garcia (Jazz FM/Musica Macondo)

‘Most Impressive, echoes a lot of greats like Orchestra Baobab and Youssou N’Dour but with very much it’s own sound’ - Jamie Renton (DJ, fROOTS)

*EVERYONE WELCOME*

It is amazing to see so many great initiatives and collectives smashing it. We have never felt more supported and encouraged by other womxn and non binaries. Because of this we have decided to come together at the end of the summer and throw a big party to show solidarity.

There is no competition and there is space for everyone :)

As summer draws to a close, let us celebrate the work of all these badass people who work their butts off for a fairer and more equal future.

We have chosen Grow, Hackney because we believe they represent our cause of coming together and showing solidarity and we'll be playing music on their terrace from 6pm, then moving inside for more intimate vibes and dancing from 10pm!
