An Evening of Music by Vegan Musicians in Support of
FRIEND Farm Animal Sanctuary

FUND RAISING EVENING
SAT | 28 JULY | 7.30pm | £10+b/f (adv) £12 OTD

We have organised a wonderful night of musically eclectic delights in support of this well-deserved animal sanctuary.

We treat you to a mix of rising stars all of whom are committed to social or environmental change through either their music, way of life, or a collaboration of both!

Juha | focusing on social consciousness, Juha is party music for the post-Brexiit blues whilst affirming the lives and accomplishments of “one hit wonders” from the 80’s, in a sonic stewpot of electronic soul, world music, and new wave.

Eden and the Aftermath | Wood Green based guitar/cello duo presenting a mixture of vocal harmonies and rap.  Expect finely crafted original songs with sweeping cello tones, resonant lyrics and bluesy guitar hooks.

Queen V | Singer/Songwriter sculpts beautiful and powerful melodies around candid lyrics | VegFestUK FxEctive Factor 2018 Winner.  Hot on the heels of her debut single, Only One Life, carries an important message: to reach as many people as possible to try to extinguish all unnecessary pain and suffering in this world.  Watch out for this live debut at Karamel!

Tally Spear | Singer/Songwriter featured on BBC Radio London, she fuses Greenwich-Village-style folk influences with a British, somewhat ‘pop’ sound… a fantastic opportunity to see this wonderful new and emerging singer who is getting prime airplay and before she hits the Vegan Camp-Out 2018 Festival!

Please join us for this unique night of quality entertainment to support a well-deserved cause.

Khiyo BD Album Launch + Day of Bengali Festivities

Get ready, we’re back!

As you may know, our singer Sohini Alam has been touring with dancer/choreographer Akram Khan‘s show Until the Lions, so we haven’t gigged as much lately. Now, we’re coming back with a bang!

It’s summer and we’ve teamed up with the award-winning Karamel London N22 to bring you a day of Bengali festivities on 30th June to celebrate the release of our album in Bangladesh.

What does that mean?

Khiyo’s self-titled debut album was released by ARC Music everywhere but Bangladesh, but from 30th June, Bangladeshi fans can listen to tracks from the Khiyo album exclusively on Radio-Foorti. We’re starting the day with a Facebook live show for our Bangladeshi people. You can catch it right here on our Facebook main page at 5.30pm, which is 10.30pm in Bangladesh.

For London fans, we’ll be at Karamel from 5pm for the live stream, and then we’ll play a live two-set gig especially for you. Happy hour is from 5-8pm, which means buy-one-get-one-half-price on drinks, and there’ll be a vegan Bengali buffet. If you haven’t been to Karamel yet, here’s your chance to visit this vibrant North London venue in the former Chocolate Factory.

Be one of the first to catch our new material and come say hello on our home turf. There’s more exciting news to share, and the announcement wil be part of this event. No tickets, so just show up. We can hardly wait to see you all again.
Mad love,
Khiyo.
