About the Event

Join us to celebrate the release of  Alya Isha's nu single 'diaSpoRia' and the public launch of Nu World  Groove: a night of liberation music from all areas of the diaspora,  rooted in sounds from the incredibly diverse Indian Ocean. From South London, Latin American and French-Arab Hiphop to Indo-Afro fusion beats  accompanied by live tabla, that will keep you dancing all night. Y por ser el dia de los muertos, acuérdate de venir y bailar con tus ancestros

This  night will be one to remember!


The debut of Nu World Groove music brought to you LIVE as Alya Isha celebrates her first single 'diaSpoRia'.   

South-London  soulstress, poet, producer and multi-instrumentalist, Alya Isha  pioneers ‘Nu World Groove’ music: a hypnotic, rhythmic and potent nu  sound for a nu world.

Channelling  her Indian Ocean ancestry, her first single ‘diaSpoRia’ - already  picked up by BBC Introducing - is the launch of this nu sound: a call to  step into our power and protect our land and peoples from exploitation  and a celebration of being of the diaspora.

Born  and raised in Japan, moving to Tooting, London and then Santiago de  Cuba before returning to Brixton; the British, Indian-Mauritian and  Swiss artist takes inspiration from her roots; adding her trademark  hard-hitting political lyricism. She will be accompanied by Lou Sticpewich on double bass, Mahesh Parkour on tabla and on keys.

Recently signed to FPE Records, this collaboration with Insula from Reunion Island is unlike anything London has heard before.


King  Monday acts as an all-encompassing sound exploration project for  Croydon born, Mauritian heritage artist Sherwyn Appadu. Sherwyn helped  found the collective Daytimers in 2020 alongside founder Provhat Rahman  and is part of The Pink Islands Collective. His sonic diary has amassed  attention for being an unpredictable, varied catalogue of everything  from heavy hitting club tracks to gentle lullaby, liminal space inspired  compositions. The album “King Monday (Self Titled)” (September 2022)  gained Sherwyn’s first plays on BBC Introducing & BBC Radio 1Xtra  and a placement in Spotify’s New Music Friday UK. A series of remixes for the album is being released this year alongside bandcamp club tools & a new collaborative project.

King Monday's set will be accompanied live by Mahesh Parkour on tabla.


Italian and international multi-instrumentalist, singer , composer and producer; Gaia has been described as: "a sophisticated performer enchanting audiences with her world-travelling sonic performance" .


A writer & performer hailing from South London, Senxe combines his  love for language with his roots in Grime, Hip-Hop, Neo Soul and poetry.  

Expect technical flows, lyricisms, storytelling & a performance  that will leave your mind thinking and your spirit energised! Off the  back of a headline show at Brixton Jamm & BBC Radio plays with Dj  Target & DJ Spyro, this is not a performance to miss!


Makel  G is a dominican rapper, singer, producer, freestyle battle rapper  based in London UK. His live energy and connection with the public, as  well as his lyricism and ability to compose and interpret Afro, Latino  and hip hop rhythms have always made him stand out.


ZOÉ  is a multilingual rapper who seamlessly switches between French,  English and Spanish, over Latin inspired beats and Arabic percussions.

Born  in Thailand, and raised in Cambodia, Mali and Tanzania, ZOÉ is a  cultural chameleon and this shows in her music, as her inspirations are  varied and far-reaching. At times melancholic, sometimes furious at the  political state of the world, she addresses it all in her music.


Kaitlene  Koranteng is a poet and archivist. She explores hidden histories and  the unravelling of them. Kaitlene uses poetry as a medium for  communicating what is left unsaid. In her archival practice, she has  been working archives of emergent contemporary art practice and African  literature from and of the diaspora.
