IDMC sells out South London jazz club

Even by the choir leader’s own admission, Hideaway jazz club in Streatham took a huge gamble when they booked the venue for IDMC’s headline show.

Review: Becca Folkes @ Regent Hall, London

Wow. Just wow. If we had our own way, that would be the extent of our review of last night’s Becca Folkes live show. But apparently, it’s considered bad form to be THAT succinct. You get the point, though – we enjoyed it. Initially, we were a bit concerned. How can a singer with such…

Review: Muyiwa & Riversongz @ Transformation House, London
