Celebrating Sanctuary: Namvula

Thursday 10th November

Continuing the celebrations for their 20th Anniversary Programme CSB has more amazing World Music artists, as part of the ongoing series of events in partnership with B:Music at Symphony Hall. CSB will showcase a spectrum of local, national and international musicians, originating from around the world.

 

Fusing the folk and urban traditions of her Zambian homeland and her Scottish roots with London’s eclectic music scene, Namvula blends African sounds and rhythms with Latin, jazz and folk into uplifting and emotive songs. Crossing boundaries with a refreshing honesty and evocative lyricism, Namvula’s music transports listeners into different worlds, whilst staying firmly rooted in African soil. One of the few Zambian artists performing in Europe, Namvula has collaborated and shared the stage with top international artists, and has worked with some of the UK’s most respected African, jazz and folk musicians.

Namvula is also a creative music-making and choral workshop facilitator and believes in the power of music to uplift and engage.

Celebrating Sanctuary is a diverse music and arts organisation, who support and promote refugee and migrant artists. To find out more about their work please visit: https://www.celebrating-sanctuary.org.uk/
