Due to popular demand... we had the wonderful Good as Gold return to Art Represent, with their guitarist freshly back from the land of fire and ice.

The trio transformed into a quartet and we had a fantastic night of music and cool.

A Nepalese Soirée

26 | SEPTEMBER | 2014

No one expected a Nepalese dance party but that's exactly what we got. An extraordinary musical night, introducing Ganga Thapa and band.

Ganga is an accomplished musician from Nepal, now performing in London. A SOAS graduate in Ethnomusicology, his music is influenced not only by Nepalese, but Indian, Latin and African styles. This rare combination created a unique, lyrical sound not to be missed.
Ganga is joined by a group of talented artists to make a one-of-a-kind ensemble:

Ganga Thapa (vocals, guitar)
Shreya Rai (vocals)
Robyn Hemaings (double bass)
Siemy Di (percussion)

We were incredibly honoured to have two world class musicians come and jam at the gallery - composer and oud player Attab Haddad and percussionist Ratul Shankar. 

Attab Haddad, once a banker, is now a world known musician, having studied in Egypt and SOAS, London. He has collaborated with numerous international artists and has played all over the world.  Ratul Shankar is a percussionist and actor, coming from an incredibly creative family, who have been strong inspirations for his work. Ratul, a relative of Norah Jones, has been part of various World Music Projects. 

It was an incredible evening of music, free-styling and an open question session between songs with the musicians.

We had an amazing night of jazz with the Good as Gold Trio feat. the wondrous Vince Webb.

The trio played a range of tunes from hot to cool with their own little twist. 
The great Ösp Eldjárn mesmerised with a repertoire of covers from the Great American Songbook, some cheeky 1950s numbers, beautiful ballads and classic swing numbers inspired by the legendary Ella Fitzgerald, blues in the style of Billie Holliday and Bessie Smith as well as latin rhythms. There will even be some special treats sung in Icelandic.

The amazing Abyss Quartet opened our successful music events with a spectacular night of ethiopian jazz. 

One of Ethiopia’s greatest innovations, Ethiopian Jazz, termed ‘Ethio-Jazz’, is a unique fusion of traditional Ethiopian music, with jazz, Afro-funk, soul and Latin rhythms. Marked by eerie and ancient-sounding tones, typical of traditional Ethiopian music, Ethio-Jazz also displays the sensual undertones of soulful jazz. Read on to explore the dramatic story of Ethiopia’s most recognisable music genre.
