LMFF presents: Tropical December

The Migration Collective are hosting a six day film festival from 30th November till 5th December. The goal of London Migration Film Festival is to portray the diversity, nuance and subjective experience within migration - including and beyond the refugee experience - in order to restore the dignity and humanity inherent within it. As part of London Migration Film Festival we will be kicking off December with a bang! What better way to start the festive month with some tropical sounds and beats.

On the evening of Friday 1st December we'll be graced by some of London's finest DJ's and a special duo from The Turbans, so expect some big tunes! To learn a little more about our guests for the evening and what to expect, have a read below...

We'll be kicking the night off with sounds of DJ BlondeZilla. She comes with a heavy bag of equally heavy African vinyl; from 70s Ghanaian Highlife, Nigerian Funk and Senegalese Sabar, to Somali Pop, Sierra Leone party bangers and electro street music from Mali. Expect to shake a leg to these sounds!

Then we will welcome Darius & Oshan from The Turbans. These guys are part of an international musical collective bringing together exciting traditional near-Eastern and Eastern-European styles and original compositions, to create a modern and energetic performance with reverence for its ancient roots.

To carry on the party we'll be graced with the presence of dream team DJ Sheeb and Emilio. These guys will be playing a back-to-back set of funky, tropical tunes. To warm your ears and get in the groove, have a listen to some of their sounds HERE and HERE.

We are looking forward to welcoming you with us to shake a leg and bring in December with a sounds of tropical sunshine!
