Delighted to host a double bill of Valentina Magaletti and Susumu Mukai - aka Zongamin - after two standout releases on our own in-house TakuRoku label.
London based drummer and multi-instrumentalist Valentina Magaletti plays rhythm sections in projects such as Raime (Blackest Ever Black), Vanishing Twins (Soundway), The Oscillation (Hands in the Dark) and is half of the bustling and well-known combo Tomaga. Like the work of General Strike and Hype Williams, Zongamin molds his explorations in multi-genre goo, but bypasses obvious pastiche, instead unearthing a form of latent, submerged funk.
We'd love to see you. In order to keep things safe we will be limiting capacity to 30 people, with a maximum of 6 people in each group and no standing. Visitors will be asked to scan a QR code at the door when they arrive, using the NHS COVID-19 app. We will be providing hand sanitiser - and note that we will only be accepting card payments.
Magaletti plays rhythm sections in projects such as Raime (Blackest Ever Black), Vanishing Twins (Soundway), The Oscillation (Hands in the Dark) and is half of the bustling and well-known combo Tomaga (with Tom Reellen). Devoted to musical exploration, Tomaga obsessively deconstruct familiar tropes, looking for the tension that lies between improvisation and form. «Eccentric, virtuoso, hypnotic and contagious, from jazz patterns to experiments on prepared drum kit, Valentina's style effortlessly defines her shape of the dance.»
