London EAST Festival runs from Mar 6th-11th in East London.

St ~Ethelburgas will host two gigs as part of this festival.
Mar 8th: KHARABAT ~ Sufi Music from Afghaistan

Kharabat is an old area of Kabul synonymus with Afghan music.
Yusuf Mahmoud has invited over four outstanding musicians from this area of Kabul to perform at an Afghan film & Cultural Festival in Edinburgh last weekend. By all accounts the concert was a huge success.
We are delighted to host their London gig at St Ethelburga's. They are joined by three musicians based in the uk for what should be an exciting concert.
Mohamed Khalid (rubab), Mohamed Yassin (dilrubab), Adil Shad (dolak), Mir Afghan (tambour), Yusuf Mahmoud (tabla), Timor Shaidaie (vocal), kalia Baklitzankia (vocal).
They will give an afternoon workshop from 3-5pm which will be a chance to explore the history/background of music coming out of Kharabat and instruments plus demonstations from each of the artists.
