Kefaya is a musical collective founded by UK-based musicians, Giuliano Modarelli and Al MacSween. Through collaborations with artists from around the world, they have developed a unique voice that explores world-folk traditions through the means of improvisation, electronics and contemporary grooves.
Bringing together their versatility and extensive range of influences, Kefaya's appeal is in their ability to fuse musical idioms in a unique and organic way. Their sound results from a deep understanding of different musical traditions as well as extensive collaborations with artists from around the world. Their material expresses a deep social and political awareness, utilising folk songs and re-workings of revolutionary anthems.
Regular members of Kefaya include Kenny Higgins - bass (UK), Joost Hendrickx - drums (UK), Alessia Tondo - vocals (Italy), Deborshee Bhattacharjee - vocals (India), 'Complete' - vocal quartet (South Africa), Richard Ormrod - reeds (UK), Cormac Byrne - percussion (Ireland), Olivia Moore - violin (UK), Chico Pere - Vocals (Spain), Oliver Dover - sax/clarinet (UK), Matt Holborn - violin (UK), Glenn Sharp - guitar (UK).
We are very sorry to announce that due to ill health Stan Tracey's concert
at the Vortex on Saturday, 7th September is cancelled.
We apologise for any disappointment caused.
Tonight kicks off a brand new series of late night jam sessions on the first and third Saturday of the month. Continuing the long tradition of jazz jam sessions with musicians fine tuning their chops & maybe sparring a little too, the Vortex Late Night Sessions offer the chance to see some truly extraordinary musicians play a relaxed, off the cuff gig. And all for the price of a pint. Led by guitarist Hannes Riepler, the atmosphere is playful but the calibre is outstanding.
