TIME AND PLACE:
@ The Round Chapel, 1d Glenarm Road, London E5 0LY
Free audio-visual extravaganza of live music performed by the World Jazz Ensemble of England accompanied by stunning visuals and projections created in collaboration with young Hackney residents.
The concert will premiere compositions produced with young musicians during music and digital media workshops led by Hackney-born multi-instrumentalists Orphy Robinson and Rowland Sutherland, and digital media artists SDNA.
Using Hackney’s rich cultural heritage as inspiration, young people have created new music from Caribbean, Turkish, Indian, African, Balkan and Jewish musical influences, and created innovative visuals to illustrate the compositions.
The concert programme will also feature new compositions by Rowland Sutherland and Orphy Robinson that pay homage to Hackney.
The World Jazz Ensemble of England is a group of established soloists and emerging musicians including Rowland Sutherland on Flute, Orphy Robinson on Electronics, Kate Shortt on Cello, Jessica Lauren on Keyboard, Beibei Wang on Xylosynth and Percussion, Alec Dankworth on Double Bass, Cosimo Keita Cadore on Drum Kit and guest Kayman Aldis on Trumpet.
