Karama

Karama: One of the most popular Arabic bands in the United Kingdom, Karama is led by Moroccan Oud player Soufian Saihi and brings his compositions based around the oud, clarinet, double bass and percussion. Finding inspiration from the beautiful ecstatic Gnawa, North African and Arabic classical music as well as the diverse sounds of London, Karama’s members are also from Venezuela, Spain, Japan, Morocco and the UK. Their music and songs tell the story of the immigrant, the homeless, technology and the Arab Spring, wandering brilliantly through diverse sonic landscapes, meditative, funky and beautifully melodic. Taking place on 25 September, 2015 at Rich Mix, 35-47 Bethnal Green Road, London E1 6LA.
