Thu 12th OctMusic, On Stage
Join us for Anushka's crisp clubby sounds and XOA's unapologetic dancefloor grooves
Based in Brighton, producer Max Wheeler and singer/songwriter Victoria Port are Anushka, melding together crisp clubby sounds, with the accent on bass and broken beats gleaned from house and UK funky house, and Port's jazzy vocals. The pair are signed to Gilles Peterson's trusted label Brownswood Recordings and are sure to make good on their promise of embodying "vocal music for sound systems".
Joining them will be London's XOA, the solo project of multi-instrumentalist Nick Tyson, fusing the rhythmic intensity of '70s Afrobeat with unapologetic dancefloor grooves.
After last year's series at Battersea Arts Centre, GOAT Music's Borderless takes its vibrant live music event from south London to east, assembling another batch of excellent artists and emerging talent to take to the stage. Nothing could be more fitting for this part of town, as Stratford steadily establishes its own cultural foothold in London, an inviting, artistic hub for all to enjoy.
On the collaboration with Goat Music, Theatre Royal Stratford East's Artistic Director Kerry Michael commented "Borderless promises to be a great festival of quality music from some amazing talent. We're really excited that we've managed to work together to fill our theatre with an impressive line up."
