We are delighted to present a unique evening featuring The Dylema Collective, along with special guests, to celebrate a mixture of their artistic heritage and heroes. Of which there are many. The 90’s mesmeric meeting of Contemporary Jazz and Hip-Hop aka Dilla’s sumptuous Neo-Soul.  Fela’s undeniable, irrepressible force of rhythmic nature and soul-quaking vocals aka Afrobeat. The emphatic, towering power of Funk; and the shimmering crescendos and hypnotic waves of New-Wave Electro and Future-Soul.

"The Dylema Collective's What If A Black Girl Knew lyrically injected the open audience with a desire to dance to their Neo Spoken-Soul."

Jazz Standard

Immersing yourself in an intoxicating and serene blend of these dazzling different worlds  offers you an experience of tectonic magnitude and a religious quality.

On this evening, a special collective of musicians  wish to pay homage to the inspirers of this art. The fuel behind their insatiable artistic innovation. The raison d’etre of their craft.

This Collective of artists seeks to explore the source of their compulsive sound and their inspiration, drawn from as far wide as their own, diverse origins: Nigeria, Zambia, Caribbean, South America, U.K and Russia.

You are cordially invited to join The  Collective’s celebration of their historic musical heroes along with the emergence of London’s most exciting voices. A rare, transcendental coming together of two art-forms, the Collective truly relish the chance to share with you, on this auspicious stage, their respect for and love of both Spoken-Word Poetry and Music with Soul.

This special event is curated by 'The Dylema Collective' and their last show sold out so make sure you book your tickets in advance.
