From The Decks To The Stars


DJ Max Reinhardt from Soho Radio and BBC Radio 3’s Late Junction has always been fascinated by the curious theatre that joins beats and live music. Ever since the days of the Mambo Inn, he’s sailed across a world of music with guests ranging from Tony Allen to Shingai Shoniwa and Eliza Carthy to Andy Sheppard.

Justin Adams & Mohamed Errebbaa: Touring the World
Justin Adams is one of the UK’s most inspired electric guitarists - he combines playing lead guitar with Robert Plant and new collaborations with Mediterranean and North African musicians. He’s travelled in music all his life, and is creating a partnership with celebrated Gnawa musician from Morocco, gimbri player Mohamed Errebbaa (the gimbri is a three-string guitar) - expect intensity, power chords and stories of arrival and departure


Rosie Frater-Taylor: Bloom
21-year-old East London-based singer, songwriter and guitarist Rosie Frater-Taylor blurs the lines between jazz, folk, pop and soul. Think Joni Mitchell meets Pat Metheny, Lewis Taylor teams up with Emily King or a female version of John Mayer.
Rosie has just released her new album ‘Bloom’ which sees her collaborate with Snowpoet’s Chris Hyson on two songs. Rosie blends adventurous songwriting with a whimsical pop sensibility, multi-layered acoustic soundscapes and virtuoso guitar skills, catching the attention of the likes of Gilles Peterson, Jordan Rakei and Michael League.


Alice Zawadzki: Families and the Stories They Tell
Jamie Cullum called her ‘uncategorisable, beautiful - a real force to be reckoned with’ and The Guardian hailed her as ‘a genuine original’.  Vocalist, violinist, songwriter, composer and improviser Alice Zawadzki draws together influences, from her early exposure to New Orleans soul and gospel, a classical training and an exploration of world and improvised music, with storytelling always at the heart of her performances and compositions.
Inside her family, her grandfather drew comic strips for a living, while haunting the docks of London and sketching the working lives of the people he saw. These pictures and their stories are the starting point for a new show about families and the stories they tell.
