Ariwo & Soundspecies / La Linea 18 / VillageUnderground 23 April

Ariwo formed in London in 2015 and made their live premiere via a global online Boiler Room session that year before wowing the Manana electronic music festival in Santiago de Cuba in 2016; and theyve been gathering steam ever since. The band brings together Pouya Ehsaei and three of Londons most influential Cuban musicians: Irakere and Carlos Acostas Latin Grammy winning percussion virtuoso, Hammadi Valdes; Yussef Kamaal and Sierra Maestra lead trumpeter, Yelfris Valdes; and godfather of Londons Cuban scene, Oreste Noda. Ariwo aim to connect their native musical traditions to electronic music in a way that pushes beyond traditional Cuban and Iranian identity, creating a sound that does not belong to any specific culture. The word ariwo means noise in Yoruba. The West African religion came to Cuba during the transatlantic slave trade and heavily influenced the islands musical development. Whether it is genres like Yamb, Songo, Guaguanc and Chang, or echoes of Havanas legendary conga processions, it is the fusion of these complex Afro-Cuban rhythms and syncopations with live electronic processes that forms the building blocks of Ariwos work. Ehsaei programmes his electronics and processes the instrumentation live, constantly changing the intensity to create a real-time dialogue that gives the music a definitive place in dancefloor culture. One of the most exciting underground acts of the moment. A truly original debut album. Twisted Soul Live Afro-Cuban rhythms and jazzy trumpet solos an instant success. Resident Advisor Formidably integrated. A sonic terra incognita guided only by a hypnotic and dubwise focus on forward motion. The Wire A soundscape that was paralyzing and moving all at once. Pitchfork A bold, standout statement with some high-def drum work. Bleep Dark, mesmeric, uplifting and danceable; you wont hear anything else like it. Evening Standard Support is Soundspecies (live), who explore the territory between traditional rhythmic percussion music and electronic dance music. They will be playing music developed from a collaboration with Ache Meyi at the Manana festival, Cuba. Featuring singer Luzmira Zerpa from Family Atlantica, percussion and guitar.

Get Dead

Be Sharp Promotions / Umlaut Records / Kick The Crutches / New Cross Inn GET DEAD http://www.getdeadmusic.com/ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nC53tXIFuio There arent a lot of bands like Get Dead around these days. Instead of worrying about gimmicks and trends, this fivesome from San Francisco, California have always focused on the music and thats evident with every passion-filled note they play. Get Dead started out performing together in 2007 after their respective bands called it quits and eventually attracted the attention of NOFX frontman Fat Mike who produced the bands first full-length, "Bad News", as well as their new full-length, "Honesty Lives Elsewhere", and released both records on his label Fat Wreck Chords.

Out-of-the-Box Thinking: What Is Secondary Education For?

For the third of our Out-of-the-Box Thinking series, co-hosted by GlobalNet21 and Conway Hall, join us for a discussion with Sir Anthony Seldon and Melissa Benn about the purpose, values and philosophical basis of secondary education and how it needs to be radically rethought for the 21st century. Both speakers will challenge the outdated ideological consensus that has dominated our educational thinking for the last three decades. Their presentations will be followed by questions and comments from the audience, and this will provide an opportunity to address issues concerning the breadth and nature of the curriculum, the pressures of assessment and inspections, league tables etc. This is one of a series of events gathering evidence to enable GlobalNet21 to formulate a new educational ethos and infrastructure for widespread dissemination. The emergence of the digital age, the growth of artificial intelligence, and the huge social disruption that these entail have had fundamental effects both on our relationship with knowledge and on the world of work. Yet school-based education has hardly acknowledged this disruptive change. Sir Anthony Seldon is a political historian and commentator on British political leadership as well as on education and contemporary Britain. He is Vice-Chancellor of the University of Buckingham, and was previously a transformative head teacher of Wellington College. Melissa Benn is a writer and campaigner. Her journalism has appeared in numerous newspapers and magazines and she is currently a regular contributor to The Guardian and New Statesman. Her books have included School Wars: The Battle for Britains Education. -- Please note to attend this event you will need to register for a ticket in order to ensure a place. This event is free for members of GlobalNet21 and the Conway Hall Ethical Society.

The Tropiclia Revolution

Afro-Brazilian jazz troupe Caravela will provide a live retelling of the history of the Tropiclia revolution with a vibrant show full of passion, energy and life. The Tropiclia movement began in the late 60s in Brazil, where the pop culture scenario, encompassing film, visual art, theatre and music was going through a major upheaval. The figureheads of the movement, Gilberto Gil and Caetano Veloso drew from psychedelia, avant-garde musique concrete, Samba, funk and soul, which created a completely new wave of style, which rejected the conservative roots of bossa nova. Caravela\'s 90 minute show will chronicle all of the classic songs and artists that emerged from what proved to be one of the biggest cultural shifts in the 20th century.
