Sustain.: 10 Years of Woodburner
Woodburner has been bringing people together around live music since 2010. From its origins in Hackney, they have run concerts in venues across London, including Islington Assembly Hall, Village Underground, The Southbank Centre, Wilton’s Music Hall, and most importantly their weekly festival at Dalston Eastern Curve Garden, which runs every Tuesday through the summer.
With a focus on world and roots music, they love the eclectic flavours that make London one of the most diverse cultural cities in the world – celebrating the incredible variety of acts that can be found in the capital, matched with doses of international talent.
In celebration of their 10th anniversary, they will bring together 5 incredible acts on one epic night under a new banner – Sustain. Expect large-scale, explosive artists reflecting the vibrant array of talent which has graced the Woodburner stage over the years, with some surprises thrown in for good measure.
The initial guest to be announced is Dizraeli with his new experimental project The Unmaster which fuses hip-hop emceeing with garage sounds on a foundation of Senegalese percussion. His explosive live band features musical direction from Kwake (Sampha , Kate Tempest), keys and samples from Raffy Bushman (Unit 31), live drums, vocals and xylophones plus Dizraeli – who has a legendary reputation as a live performer – on vocals, dance and multiple percussion instruments.
Next up are The Turbans, Growing from the intertwining paths of many talented musicians travelling the world, this extraordinary project has grown in a few years from very humble beginnings, into a progressive name on the London music scene. Its members have gathered from countries such as Turkey, Bulgaria, Israel, Iran, Greece and England to perform in concerts and festivals around the UK, North America, Middle-East, Hong Kong, India and Europe.
Born in Angola, based in Lisbon, 24-year-old Pongo explodes onto the European scene with her debut solo EP, bringing a melodic, artistic, soulful approach to the classic kuduro sound.
