Alex Etchart & Friends Debut

Folk beats. Gender smash. Diaspora dreams. Intergenerational heart. Latinx light.

After a decade playing resistance anthems and South American folk acoustically on the frontlines of environmental, decolonial and queer social movements, Alex Etchart traverses binaries and borders to debut their new transcendental sound.

Alex brings the rich, melancholy sounds of South American folklore into wild electronica, and gives new life to British Isles and Irish folk songs through rich harmony and dubstep wobbles.

LGBTQ+ realities and diasporic memories are woven through multilingual melodies and utterly danceable basslines, welcoming us to be everything we are without holding anything back.

Opening the night will be Expresión Inka’s band of second-generation youth performing traditional Andean songs with their incredible dance troupe. We will raise funds to support Expresión Inka’s year-round work providing language lessons, traditional music, dance, theatre and ancestral heritage for children of South American families who have migrated here or are in exile.

+ More guest artists to be announced…

Supported using public funds by Arts Council England.
