Tuned In London, 2017 February to March programme

Music is intrinsic to the London arts scene; a visit to the West End is a testimony to the rich tradition of musicals, opera, concerts in the many theatres and there are plenty of gigs and street buskers entertaining the busy crowds in town with their melodies and sounds. Other parts of London have been appreciated for adding something to that music scene yet many may not associate Rotherhithe, in its quiet south-of-the-river location, as a place to enjoy and listen to artists from around the world.

Eleanor Thorn, of what has now become Tuned In London, changed that five years ago, when she set up and ran the music programme at the Brunel Museum. Two years ago she moved across the street to Sands Films Cinema, where she continues to bring us the very best of independent, international music. Eleanor is herself a local resident, passionate about music and a strong believer in what Rotherhithe has to offer the arts scene, especially when it comes to music.

Her dedication has allowed audiences to appreciate a wide range of music styles from Great Britain, Europe and beyond: indeed from many far flung parts of the world. The unique performance spaces that Sands Films Studios provides adds the perfect backdrop to the concerts: the music can be enjoyed in a supremely cosy and intimate environment, which only enhances the enjoyment of the experience.

Eleanor’s Tuned In London 2017 programme starts  in February. There are  incredible gigs still to come and you won’t be short of choices. We hope you appreciate it as much as we do.

She carries with her a fine Icelandic tradition of soaring melody-led songs of glacial beauty and intense emotional power: “Tales from a Poplar Tree” is an album to savour and this will be its first outing!

Born in southern Senegal into the great line of Kouyate Griots, who continue their inherited role of storytelling and news-bearing, Kadialy sings original songs of hope, peace, love and humanity, themes that unite and uplift his audience. Inspired by traditional repertoire, he plays the kora, a beautiful African harp steeped in history, with great dexterity and ease. He’ll be in duo with music polymath and accomplished multi-instrumentalist Fred Thomas on double bass

JAZZOLEA

Wed 19th Apr, 7.45pm (doors 7.15pm), Sands Films

Made up of artists from Seville, Barcelona and London, Jazzoleá captures the mystery of Flamenco, channels it through that ever changing phenomenon we know as Jazz and adorns it with a dance form which merges the spirit of Andalusia with the rhythm of swing. London-born Esther Weekes combines these two dazzlingly masterful talents, singing & dancing, in this unique & spell-binding collaboration.
