About The Event

Tuned In London presents a year of concerts that invite audiences to reflect on the movement of people around the world, people who up sticks for a multitude of reasons, and head to lands unknown, marking the 400th anniversary of the Mayflower Ship leaving Rotherhithe's shore, captained and crewed by Rotherhithe residents. [NP] Kurdish origin, Olcay Bayir's music crosses boundaries in evocative and heart-stoppingly beautiful ways. Opera-trained, she was born on the Turkish side of the Syrian border, and her soul is rooted in the deeply-emotional music of Anatolia, home to many peoples: Turks, Kurds, Armenians and Arabs, many of whom have been displaced from the lands of their forefathers. Olcay, "one of the finest, most intriguing singers on the British world music scene" The Guardian, with now two acclaimed albums to her name, returns bringing her exquisitely clear voice that defines her original repertoire, combining jazz, folk and neo-classical with Mesopotamian and Anatolian tradition.[NP]Production by TunedIn.London, tickets £8-14.  Click [here] for more deatils.
