Respect To Aretha

September

12

Thursday

New York Afrobeat ensemble Antibalas are joined by Bettye LaVette, Zara McFarlane, Alice Russell and more special guests to be announced, to honour the legacy of the Queen of Soul.

From timeless favourites to deep cuts from her back catalogue, Arethas greatness as the defining name in soul music, is truly showcased in an evening of celebration, reflection and high energy.

Modelled on Fela Kutis Africa 70 and the Harlem River Drive Orchestra, Antibalas are an afrobeat collective currently in their third decade. They are joined by American soul icon Bettye LaVette who grew up listening to Aretha and later performed with her, and two of the voices bringing soul into the modern landscape, British singer Alice Russell, who is known for her collaborations with David Byrne and Fatboy Slim amongst others, and Zara McFarlane, now one of the most successful singers in contemporary British jazz.
