At Cafe OTO

Cafe OTO

Hi there

Amongst the shows over the next seven days, we welcome the Queen of Mbira music from Zimbabwe, Stella Chiweshe, who has established herself as one of the most original artists in the contemporary African scene using mbira music to show the depth and power of her traditional spiritual music at home and abroad.

A bonus digital release today in the form on Konstrukt‘s new album, Lotus, featuring Alan Wilkinson, Alexander Hawkins, and Daniel Spicer. From drum & bass and funk lines, to straight free jazz bursts and spiritual chantings, the range of sound in each set is incredible – and all given that classic dose of high energy by the Turkish free giants.

Full listings and all new shows below. We look forward to seeing you here.

DIGITAL RELEASE:

KONSTRUKT FEATURING ALAN WILKINSON, ALEXANDER HAWKINS & DANIEL SPICER – LOTUS

£6 (£5 Venue Members) /
Digital Members: Download with credits

Konstrukt’s return to OTO after their killer show with regular London guest Alexander Hawkins back in 2015. This time around the band invited Alan Wilkinson and Daniel Spicer to join and form a seven piece ensemble who somehow crammed themselves in behind the monitors. Both multi-intrumentalists, Wilkinson and Spicer brought fresh textures and techniques to the group. From drum & bass and funk lines, to straight free jazz bursts and spiritual chantings, the range of sound in each set is incredible – and all given that classic dose of high energy by the Turkish free giants.

Available as 320k MP3 or 24 bit FLAC

NOW AVAILABLE FOR PRE-ORDER:

PAT THOMAS – THE ELEPHANT CLOCK OF AL JAZARI

PRE-ORDER LP – £15 (£13 members)

Recorded live at OTO in May 2015 and mastered by Giuseppe Ielasi, the LP comprises four typically genre-defying and sonically dexterous pieces from one of the UK’s most extraordinary pianists.

Criminally unheralded, Pat is a fearless and uncompromising player who – despite coming from a background of free improvisation and new music – can feel as close to the worlds of noise and experimental music.
