Global sounds for East London ears

On the Western stretch of Bethnal Green Road, connecting banker-infested hipster-ville and the gentler plains of Bethnal Green and Cambridge Heath sits Rich Mix. Rich Mix is a charity and a social enterprise. It is also a well-loved East London venue with a diverse artistic programme incorporating film, performance, art, spoken word and comedy.

On Friday 13th March 2015, local arts and heritage charity Cultural Co-operation brings a rich programme of artists from around the world, for its first ‘A World in London’ (AWIL) gig, hosted by renowned global beat DJ Ritu.

What can we expect to hear?

A World in London’ boasts a moveable feast of melodies and rhythms:

  • An amuse-bouche of tunes reminiscent of traditional Shanghai tea-houses from the complex silk and bamboo melodies of the SOAS Sizhu Ensemble
  • A hearty serving of Greek and Balkan sounds from Kourelou– playing their unique blend of mainland folk with a contemporary twist
  • A sizzling slice of rhythm and rollick from the Twa communities of the DRC: conscious Congo brought to life by Mulele Matondo Afrika
  • Lashings of palate-cleansing entertainment throughout the evening by DJ Ritu including excerpts from her weekly A World in London (AWIL) radio shows. First broadcast on BBC London 94.9 in 2006, AWIL continues to showcase the most exciting global sounds in London across two Wednesday night platforms: new music reviews on SOAS Radio (16:00) and live music on Resonance FM (18.30) in conjunction with Cultural Co-operation and its Artist Network.
