About the Event

Join this Friday for a night of North African, Gypsy, Balkan, World music and dance!

Berber Diffusion are London’s first traditional Amazigh band, leading the scene with our unique blend of Amazigh pentatonic scales with Gnawa traditional music.

The Amazigh people (aka Berbers) are pre-Arab North African nomadic clans, whose history runs deep under the Saharan sand, defying many attempts at oppression and eradication. Our musical traditions have continued into the present day through small groups of travelling musicians who still play at weddings and other ceremonies and celebrations, sharing the stories and poems of our ancestors.

Founder of Berber Diffusion and lead singer, Abdellah Rais, is a multi-talented musician who studied under masters in Agadir and across Morocco. Playing the banjo, guembri, qraqab and drums, as well as a composer of  house tracks, he twists together various strains of his musical heritage to create an innovative and unique sound

Shkembe Soup 

Troupe of musicians and dancers who perform a concoction of delicious live music and swirling dance from around the world.  Let your ears be delighted by songs from Egypt, Hungary and East London and your eyes feast on swirling skirts and golden wings.  Join in clapping, singing along and dancing a kolo with us as we gallop through time and space from Medieval Morrocco to 1940s London via the deserts of Bohemia…

We sing, dance and play guitar, djembe drums, violin, mandolin, flute and more.
