Saturday Shenanigans: Richard Navarro

Richard Navarro presents R!CHES

Returning to the Globe for the second year, Richard Navarro brings his new project - and a brand new set of infectious, thought-provoking songs - to the Globe.

R!CHES  - featuring Richard Navarro and fellow multi-instrumentalist Nicholas Thurston - make joyful and often euphoric music inspired by experiences of hardship and hope. Expect a live music show packed with feats of vocal and instrumental virtuosity and fresh, popular songwriting at its best. With recent guest spots and collaborations including Joan Armatrading ("finely-crafted"), Lemn Sissay ("genius") and Imelda May ("fantastic"), such praise is well-earned, with the duo impressing new music audiences across the UK and Europe in recent months and tracks from their 2018 EP such as For The Moment and Winner beginning to feature on playlists both here and across the world.

Saturday Shenanigans: Jally Kebba Susso + Band!

If there is one name to look out for in 2018 in African funk music it is Jally Kebba Susso and his band Manding Sabu.

The kora is the traditional harp of the griot of West Africa and Jally Kebba was born and raised into 74 generations of this Gambian musical heritage. But he is not your ordinary griot.

Forging a new trajectory of sound for the West African harp, Jally Kebba skilfully blends the traditional repertoire into his own heady-jazz concoction that is immediately accessible and uplifting and yet filled with nuances and intoxicating rhythmical layers that give the music depth and intrigue.

Raised in a household of musicians, Jally Kebba was exposed to incredible musicianship from a very early age and under the guidance of his father Bully Suso, a very well-respected kora player and his elder brothers by 13 he was touring internationally across Europe.

He honed his own sound over years of experimentation on the London underground scene since 2002 when he relocated to UK. In 2007 he formed his band Manding Sabu and has since released two albums of original compositions - Banjul-London (2017) and Malaye Warr (2012) and gigged extensively.

Expect an electric stage show. With ease and confidence, this band connects. Precision, speed and a merciless energy characterise their performance style making them solid crowd-pullers at festivals such as Wilderness, Shambala and Secret Garden Party in UK. Songs are sung in Mandika and are songs of praise and love and are a timely call for togetherness and solidarity, palpable to all language speakers.

If you enjoy afrobeat and funk, and need a good dance session, you’ll find yourself in good company - to experience the kora as you’ve never seen it before.

Friday Live: Chris Antonik

Celebrated Toronto-based blues-rock guitarist, singer and songwriter Chris Antonik's upcoming 'Monarch' UK tour follows hot on the heels of his latest album 'Monarch'. Monarch, which was nominated in Canada's prestigious 2018 Maple Blues Awards (Recording/Producer of the Year; Songwriter of the Year), confirmed Chris as one of the country's top performers, alongside artists such as Matt Andersen, Steve Hill, and Colin James.

Monarch won recognition from both sides of the Atlantic: in the US, Indie Folk Americana exclaimed, "Monarch is a classic modern blues album made with wisdom and style. Antonik has a transcendent understanding of modern electric blues.” In the UK, Blues Matters Magazine said, "Antonik has poured his heart and soul into this work, and his fine vocals, masterful guitar playing, and superb band have produced an excellent album."

In 2010, Chris's self-titled debut album made its debut at #4 on the Roots Music Report for Canadian roots music radio play, and at #35 for international blues radio play. It remained in the top 100 on these airplay charts for over a year. Plaudits for the album included this from US-based Vintage Guitar Magazine, "This debut demonstrates Antonik is one to watch in the blues. He writes well and plays wonderfully."

Chris, already named 'The Future of the Blues' by Canada’s Blues Underground Network, has been compared to Eric Clapton for his stunning guitar work and innovative, sensitive songwriting. His second album, 'Better For You' (2013), was described as “a masterpiece,”

Saturday Shenanigans: Keith James - The Songs of Leonard Cohen

Enigmatic, mysterious and sub textural, songwriter Leonard Cohen was an unflinching character, with an exact sense of prose, a wry humour and courage to wrestle with the unspoken, forgiving human frailty with the stroke of each line. 

The chilling announcement of Leonard's passing marked the end of an era. His music befriended an entire generation. Within every line of his writing, he has been challenging us to listen more carefully, speak more thoughtfully, think more deeply and recognize our own fragility. A Man of Grace. This World will miss him very much!
 
With a lifetime reputation of performing in this exact way and an undying love of the ‘pure song’ Keith James gives you a concert of Cohen’s amazing material in the most intimate and sensitive way imaginable, exposing the solitary inner strength of his greatest songs in their original perfect form. Keith has performed an extensive tour of this concert in Theatres and Arts Centres across the UK, giving almost 400 concerts to over 100,000 people. This has proved to be one of the greatest honours in Keith James’ 40 year career in music. Keith lives in Powys, Wales and Andalucia, Spain
 
Amongst a concert of such songs as; Famous Blue Raincoat, Sisters of Mercy, Suzanne and Hallelujah, are also Poems by Lorca that Keith has set to music; Cohen’s greatest influence. There will also be songs from ‘You want it Darker’ released only weeks before his death – produced by his Son, Adam.
