London’s Mosaïques Festival, which features some of France’s top contemporary world music acts, returns on November 28
Featuring some of the very best talents from the French world music scene, the 14th edition of the Mosaïques Festival of World Culture will take place at Rich Mix in London on Friday, November 28.
The opening act, Debademba (pictured), is comprised of guitarist Abdoulaye Traoré from Burkina Faso and Malian griot singer Mohamed Diaby. They perform a blend of African styles with the Mande heritage at its heart, all occasionally combined with blues and rock elements.
Based in Marseille and led by singer-songwriter Mehdi Haddjeri, Temenik Electric will perform rock music with Algerian, Gnawa and chaabi influences from North Africa. Their debut album Ouesh Hada? was released in 2013 by Nomad Cafe (a Top of the World in #94) .
Parisian DJ duo Acid Arab mixes music from North Africa, Lebanon, Egypt, Turkey and Mumbai with electronic sounds.
The evening’s live performances will be preceded, at 2pm, by a free conference about musicians from around the world performing in the UK and the difficulties they face.
