To celebrate Black History Month, Grand Union Orchestra, the UK’s pioneers in cross-cultural music-making, bring their Trading Roots project to Poplar Union. This special evening sees the band travel through the musical connections and re-worked traditions that link Africa with Latin-America and the Caribbean.
The band will be joined by the young participants of the free instrumental workshops, which are taking place on the 23rd October (At Spotlight in Poplar) and 25th October (at Poplar Union). The workshops are free to attend and tickets for the performance are £8/ £5 concessions, and can be booked by ringing: 020 3039 3333.
Expect West African drumming and chant, hi-life, calypso and soca, ska and reggae, salsa and samba – a feast of dance rhythms!
