The music continues during EFG London Jazz Festival 2020
Our favourite local venue, Karamel, may be closed for the time being, but the spirit of our live music gigs continues…. We are very excited to announce that we are part of the EFG London Jazz Festival 2020! Collage Arts will be hosting a series of free online gigs at Karamel from Friday 13 November to Sunday 22 November 2020. Watch our gigs over on Karamel music online (youtube).
The artists, bands and musicians taking part are thrilled to have an opportunity to perform together in the venue since lockdown and have their music streamed online (even though it will be without an audience due to current restrictions). The bands cover a wide spectrum of Jazz, Soul, Samba and World Music that will take audiences from North to West Africa, Middle East to Brazil, and back to the UK. Taking part are: 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
Book a place through the festival website or MusicGlue so you receive full details of the online events in the lead-up to the festival and prepare for an online jazz season like no other at Karamel! Subscribe to Karamel music online where the gigs will be streamed from.
All events will be available to enjoy for free. We are making a special request for audience members and jazz supporters to make a donation of £5 to £10 (or more!) to show your appreciation and support for the bands and the events during these unusual times (www.justgiving.com/collagearts).
We look forward to seeing you online in November! Please share the events through your social media and give us some feedback during or after each gig.
