On November 12 the Roundhouse, Camden will host an evening of spectacular music making and collaboration, this year led by global star Angélique Kidjo

Following a hugely successful 2015 edition with Jamie Cullum, the Roundhouse will once again be taken over this autumn by a range of talented, emerging artists from across the globe. Part of the EFG London Jazz Festival, a variety of musical genres and styles will be fused with circus dramatics, with performers from as far afield as the Faroe Islands, Palestine, India and Brazil joining this hugely popular London event.

At the heart of this year’s project and joining the artists on stage will be three-time Grammy Award-winning, politically engaged, Beninese singer and global star Angélique Kidjo (pictured). She has produced an exclusive track for the project, which each participating group will be given to redefine in their own interpretation, culminating in a live collaborative performance at the Roundhouse in November.

Other artists set to perform include: Kinetika Bloco, Roundhouse Choir, Roundhouse Music Collective and Roundhouse Audio Collectives, Breakin’ Convention (Sadler’s Wells), Battersea Art Centres Beat Box Academy and Roundhouse Street Circus Collective.
