SOAS University of London’s Department of Music, the largest and leading centre in Europe for the study of world music, has announced its new programme for the 2018/19 concert series.

The series features diverse and versatile artists and kicks off with musician Wiyaala’s potent fusion of West African folk songs and stadium Afro-pop, informed by her personal interpretation of traditional West African mythology and storytelling on 19 October. Other highlights include Anglo-Zulu word and sound artist DemiMa (14 December); master of the Armenian duduk, Arsen Petrosyan  (11 January); and emerging French trio, Samaïa (3 May).

With an ever growing popularity and profile, the SOAS Concert Series has established itself as the place to go for some of the most interesting and varied multicultural music in London today, with consistently high quality performances and a great concert atmosphere.
