  • Sounds of the World #6

    all ages

    Book now

    Sounds of the World brings critically acclaimed global musicians to Woolwich, creating a platform to share live music with local audiences. Join us on November 24th for the sixth event in the series for some ancient Japanese serenity followed by the electric energy of Gypsy folk.

    We start with Keiko Kitamura, who will demonstrate to us the expressive beauty of the Japanese Koto. Keiko studied this instrument and others at the feet of her aunt Kyoko Kitamura, who is a grand master in the traditional Japanese music Ikuta-ryu. Keiko is an internationally renowned performer, whose blissful mastery will provide the perfect start to the night.

    She will be followed by an explosive performance by The London Gypsy Orchestra. This large ensemble of musicians from all cultures and backgrounds performs rousing arrangements of traditional music from Eastern Europe and the Balkans.  The orchestra aims to spread the joy of the magic of Gypsy music, by the performance of its culture and dance.

    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 is an important part of the Sounds of the World’s ethos – welcoming local traders to cater for the audience with food from a huge variety of cultures. This time, we will have the pleasure of enjoying food from Yak Bites, a Nepalese collective bringing us the rich flavours of this beautiful country.

     

    Sounds of the World is a partnership between South East musician and promoter Ganga Thapa and Greenwich & Lewisham Young People’s Theatre.  ‘We live in a remarkably diverse society, but sometimes we forget our communities because of lack of time’ (Ganga Thapa).
