At 2019's Songlines Encounters Festival, we paid homage to Éthiopiques, marking 21 years of the game-changing album series. Headlining the night was the legendary Girma Bèyènè and French Ethio-jazz group Akalé Wubé for an extremely special performance in Hall One. We’re delighted to be able to share this concert in full for the first time as part of our Wednesday Watch series. Join us at 7pm BST on Wed 15 Jul to watch the show in full.
We are determined to come through this time of crisis together and with our creativity intact.
Unlike most charitable arts organisations, we rely almost exclusively on income from ticket sales and conference hire. That income has abruptly ended, impacting our community and our team.
We are a place of belonging, a place where many people connect with their passion. Arts and culture are a fundamental part of thriving society and we need it in the most difficult times. Please donate today, so we can provide a place for inspiration and belonging in the future.
