In December, we hosted the Karamel Revolution with yuletide jazz, soul and poetry from some of our favourite stars of stage and screen, on Collage Arts Online youtube channel. Click to Rewatch the event.
In November, we were part of the EFG London Jazz Festival 2020!
Collage Arts hosted a series of free online gigs at Karamel from Friday 13 November to Sunday 22 November 2020. Watch all our events on demand over on Karamel music online (youtube).
The artists, bands and musicians taking part were thrilled to perform together in the venue and have their music streamed online (even though it was without an audience due to restrictions). The bands covered a wide spectrum of Jazz, Soul, Samba and World Music taking audiences from North to West Africa, Middle East to Brazil, and back to the UK. Taking part were: Zantogola | Cosimo Keita Trio | Jay Phelps Quartet | Yaz Fentazi Duo | Philip Clouts Quartet | Henry Lowther’s Still Waters | Da Bossa Nova ao Samba Jazz with Mario Bakuna Band | Tomorrow’s Warriors night | Anoushka Lucas | Pigfoot | Ubunye
At Collage Arts, we’re constantly striving to create fun, cultural and vibrant events. Our productions include jazz world and live music, film screenings, spoken word, poetry, and a plethora of artistic cultural events.
We aim to bring diversity to all our events, especially our music, bringing a range of vocals and experimental sound – from world music, salsa, jazz through to indie, classical and folk artists.
Alongside our music gigs, we frequently hold private views, exhibitions and festivals for all members of the family including Collage Kids club!
