CLEVELAND WATKISS

THU 28TH NOVEMBER

It is well known that Jamaica has a long history of pioneering musical sounds - from Mento, Ska, Reggae, Dub, Roots and way beyond with many of its internationally celebrated musicians spawning from that great musical institution (The Alpha Boys School) under the tutelage of (The Nun) Sister Mary Ignatius Davis.  Cleveland Watkiss and his internationally acclaimed band sing the songs of Gregory Isaacs, Dennis Brown, Delroy Wilson, and more.

SARATHY KORWAR

THU 17TH OCT

In the last few years, we've been fortunate to see a resurgence, and reimagining, of the polyamorous love affair between hip hop, jazz, and radical politics. In the increasingly nightmarish world we're all inhabiting, work of this nature is integral to keep the resisters dancing, shouting, awake. More Arriving, the latest from UK-based drummer/tablaist and composer Sarathy Korwar, is a confrontational, musically far-reaching addition to the revolution music toolkit.
