A gathering of world-class musicians from around the globe, monthly club night and livestream series, Parasang celebrates the different sounds present in London today. Each of the three Parasang shows in the London Unwrapped series at Kings Place brings together an eclectic selection of London-based musicians from diverse cultural roots and musical backgrounds to create a new musical form that is ancient and new, spontaneous and organised. Using electronic machines and modular synthesisers, Pouya Ehsaei, co-founder of Parasang, creates an ever-evolving structure of electronic sounds. Together they explore this soundworld, responding to one another in a unique way – like starlings floating in the sky, following one another, taking the lead from each other, constantly morphing into a new form, constantly evolving together. Expect waves of sound influenced by Jazz, Dub, Afro-Cuban Rhythms, Electronic dance music and West African Griots.
For the first iteration of the series, Pouya Ehsaei will be joined by: Camilla George MOBO-Nominated, Nigerian-born saxophonist who performs a hypnotizing blend of Afrofuturism, hip hop and jazz. Kadialy Kouyate, Senegalese Kora virtuoso and singer whose mesmerising style and griot legacy keeps enriching London’s music scene. Marley Drummond, a drummer known for his laid-back but precise style who takes influence from reggae, funk and jazz.
Parasang is a night of live improvisation led by Iranian electronic musician Pouya Ehsaei and producer Harry Follett. More info: @Parasanglive
