Join us for a celebration of music! Four bands, talented musicians, amazing music from around the world! The evening will progress from agit-pop, to soul, afro-funk and blues to the entrancing power and beat of gypsy jazz!

The bands:

The Irresistible Urges
From poetic to political lyrics, original songs with voodoo rhythms and a kaleidoscopic assortment of instruments, voices, harmonies and personalities.

Omar Afif and Gnawa Trance Fusion
Will take the audience on a journey through Gnawa music via blues and afro-funk to the essential soul roots party!

Aberlady Moonshine Orchestra
The Aberlady Moonshine Orchestra came together in the summer of 2017. They play traditional blues & jazz standards arranged in contemporary style.

The Hot Club of Edinburgh
A stylish, international jamming collective who perform and improvise on an exciting repertoire of hot gypsy jazz. The members of the band use their diverse cultural and musical backgrounds to bring unique interpretations of these tunes to the stage. Under Reinhardt and co’s guiding influence you will hear the violin, accordion and gypsy guitar weave, soar and bounce together. Soak up the twists and turns, addictive rhythms, heartbreaking melodies and playful licks as we go on an imaginary journey to Paris circa 1930.

The event, as part of Syn Festival Edinburgh 2018, is supported by The National Lottery Awards for All Scotland.

Admission is FREE. Donations will be given to projects supporting the homeless in Edinburgh.
