@ Rich Mix 35-47 Bethnal Green Road, London E1 6LA
Its full on It’s a festive fun at Mwalimu Express this Yuletide. Yes Santa’s come early. But he left proper good presents so on the 18th Transglobal Underground (TGU) presents LONDON ZULU and on screen the hip hop dance mayhem of MARTHA AND NIKI
Live and Direct: the incredible London Zulu featuring her funky highness Ingrid Webster and the Transglobal Underground collective.
TGU the godfathers of boundary crossing global beats continue to mesmerise on their ethno techno mission funking up all corners of the globe. London Zulu came into being during the TGU incarnation that featured the late great London based Zulu vocalist, dancer and musician Doreen Webster Thobekile. When Doreen arrived as a refugee from the apartheid regime, she had her daughter Ingrid Webster with her. Ingrid grew up to work as a vocalist with Soul II Soul, Aswad, Angelique Kidjo, Neneh Cherry and many others, as well as dancing and acting in ‘Ipi Tombi’ and ‘Black Heroes in the Hall of Fame.’
After ‘London Zulu’ was released young Ingrid went on the road with the Transglobal collective. Since Doreen’s untimely passing, the same team have continued to celebrate Doreen’s work, keeping a London beat
but always true to the music’s African roots.
ON SCREEN: Screen Station’s Prof Andy Jones has a very special treat as he conjures up another first – half a film! So we’ll be screening a dance-along opening 40 minutes of the delectable Martha & Niki – the world’s first ever female World Champions in Hip Hop Dance. We know you’re going to love it so much you’ll just HAVE to find the rest of the film as soon as you get home…
