Southwark Music Service and LCCM are delighted to welcome back All About The Band. An exciting FREE opportunity for young musicians in Southwark to work with industry professionals in series of workshops focusing on performance technique and training. Whatever your style this is a chance not to be missed.
Bloco Lates is a session that takes place fortnightly at the Royal Festival Hall to encourage younger Kinetica Bloco participants to engage in various genres of music. With the aim to inspire upcoming musicians and dancers, each session is led by a slightly older generation of Kinetika participants.
Through these sessions we hope to expose participants to various genres of music and styles of dance. This ranges from Jazz (contemporary and traditional), Hip Hop, Electronics, Afrobeat(s) and many more. With each session following a specific theme, we hope to encourage participants to learn new style of music and dance whilst inspiring new styles and approaches created by young musicians.
Please note this event is Free and is open to all!
