The Department of Music at SOAS, University of London, the largest and leading centre in Europe for the study of world music, has announced its event programme for the 2013/14 academic year.
This series brings together a range of established and up and coming international artists at SOAS, which offers a BA degree in Music - alone or in a wide range of combined degrees with other subjects - and MA degrees in Ethnomusicology, Performance, Music in Development, and Global Creative and Cultural Industries, and an MPhil/PhD programme in musical research.
The performances include Jorge Bravo, whose style ranges from classical to flamenco and from gypsy jazz to Latin American styles, Mehboob Nadeem, an accomplished master on sitar and vocals, Mulele Matondo offering Congolese music with Pan-African consciousness and Karama, a promising new band led by Moroccan oud player Soufian Saihi.
