Original music and world-folk-gypsy classics from London and beyond with Tashkezar, Worldwide Welshman and Anna McAndrew.

Program:
8.30pm:- relaxing soul detox with Anna McAndrew, some soft dancing and singing along.
9.30pm:- detox over, time to get drunk and dance crazily...although you can be completely sober and still go wild to Worldwide Welshman & Beyond
10.45pm: — you've lost your voice, and your legs are tired, but still still you dance for another hour or more to Tashkezar, revitalised by the warm vocals or Mariam Ali; you don't know the language but you're singing along anyway
Midnight, or later:- you've had fun, spent lots of money at the bar and purchased all the band merchandise. Time to go home for an amazing sleep...or not…

Tashkezar
Tashkezar are back in London with thier refreshing and groovy retelling of songs from the Balkans to the Middle East and beyond, and their own catchy original songs. Their warm and energetic performances evoke shifting moods and atmospheres, weaving a tapestry of delicate melodies, vocal harmonies, mesmeric percussion, punchy brass, and wild floor shaking basslines. They are fronted by British-Egyptian singer Mariam Ali, singing gloriously in a multitude of languages including Arabic, Turkish, Persian, Roma, Greek, Spanish and more.

Check them on Facebook, Bandcamp, SoundCloud and YouTube.

Anna McAndrew
Folk artist and singer songwriter Anna McAndrew will take you on a journey through the lyrical landscapes of France and Canada with her tranquil, contemporary folk songs and enchanting voice. Her quirky, personal, surreal yet accessible lyrics are brought to life by her gorgeous melodies and softly-strummed rhythms on the 4-stringed cuatrolele, and supported by a small semi-acoustic band of cajon, bass and guitar. Her main influences are folk, chanson and «world» music, and artists such as Joan Baez and Lhasa de Sela.
