Event Excerpt
This week, meet Karama, an exciting band formed by Moroccan Oud player Soufian Saihi. His compositions fuse tradition with modernity, finding inspiration from the ecstatic Gnawa, North African and classical Arabic music. Karama's songs embrace a wide range of subjects, it tells the story of London’s hectic life, the elderly struggle with modern technology, the homeless, the immigrant and the Arab spring. Their music wanders brilliantly through diverse sonic landscapes, superbly funky and beautifully melodic.
