LIVE STREAM AND IN THE CAFE: Valentina Magaletti solo + Valentina Magaletti / Susumu Mukai (Zongamin) duo

No Longer Available

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.

Valentina Magaletti

Valentina Magaletti is an Italian-born, UK-based drummer, percussionist and composer whose explorative blend of ritualistic and electronic motifs have earned her recognition in the contemporary musical landscape.

Gaining prominence as part of acclaimed avant-pop group Vanishing Twin and improvisational duo Tomaga in the 2010s, Magaletti’s collaborative instinct and multi-instrumental skill have seen her record and perform with Jandek, Helm, Raime, Nicolas Jaar, Malcom Catto, Charles Hayward, Graham Lewis, Thighpaulsandra, Thurston Moore, Bat for Lashes, Gruff Rhys and many more.

Her current projects include CZN, Moin and Holy Tongue, where free jazz, drone and percussive elements meet sound system frequencies to devastating effect.
