This event is dedicated to Doreen Thobekile a wonderful singer and performer and one of the major figures in the South African London community. Doreen was a great friend and supporter of WOMA from the beginning, appearing with other artistes at all of our annual fundraising gigs.
She will be sorely missed but her footprint will remain and we are delighted to pay tribute to her through the live appearance of members of Transglobal Underground, the worlds greatest world fusion band that Doreen was a member of for a number of years. The night features Doreen’s daughter Ingrid singing some of Doreen’s songs.
Poetic Pilgrimage an exciting female hip hop and spoken word duo from the UK. They are a rare act, being one of the few Muslim female outfits around who are unafraid to express themselves through the art of rhyme.
The legendary DJ Ritu will be mixing a magical blend of contemporary new releases and world music classics. Ritu is a champion for WOMA and presenter of A World in London, the weekly BBC Radio London programme (BBC London 94.9)which showcases the best of global music.
So come and join us for a very special night of cross cultural sounds from right across Africa and start the New Year with WOMA in mind.
