The Jukebox Picks: Hamid Ajbar CusCus Flamenco with Alberto Funes and Irene la Serranilla

Hamid Ajbar CusCus Flamenco with Alberto Funes and Irene la Serranilla

In the same way that the blend of couscous spices surround us with its exotic fragrance and exquisite flavour, CusCus-Flamenco´s music fills us with enchantment and mystery, sentiment and spirit. The profundity of the flamenco singing and Arab-Andalusian lyrical poetry in their purest form, accompanied by the beauty and passion of flamenco dance makes for an unforgettable and unique experience. CusCus Flamenco is a cultural encounter where art flows in its maximum capacity, bringing out the best of each tradition through a musical language that has neither barriers nor frontiers.

CusCus Flamenco is led by singer/violinist Hamid Ajbar, originally from Morocco, but based in Spain for over twenty years. He grew up in a musical environment in his hometown of Chefchaouen, which boasts a direct legacy of Andalusian music, transmitted through generations ever since the expulsion of the Muslims from Spain. He studied both Andalusian and Arab singing for over ten years and has won several prizes on a national level in Morocco for his singing. He has collaborated with some of the greatest flamenco artists including the late Paco de Lucia, Carmen Linares, Jose Merce, and El Lebrijano. He has taken part in several festivals in Mexico, Switzerland, Portugal, Algeria, Morocco, Italy, Tunisia and Spain, and is currently planning a UK tour for next year.


Alberto Funes is a flamenco singer from Granada who was one of the first to graduate in the Cristobal de Morales Conservatory of Seville under the modality of flamenco song. He continued his studies with El Pele, Paco Taranto, Marina Heredia and Calixto Sanchez, amongst others, and has taken part in many festivals and events worldwide, including the Flamencura Festival in Moscow, the Biennale in the Netherlands with "A Palo Seco" by Sara Cano, the Biennale in Rome, the International de la Musique Andalouse Almonastir (Tunisia) and others.


Irene La Serranilla was born in Madrid. From a young age, she studied flamenco dance and continued her studies in Granada and Seville, where she learned from some of the best masters, including Juan Amaya, La Farruca, Patricia Guerrero, La Moneta, and Manuel Liñan. She has been dancing in the best tablaos in Madrid and Granada for over eight years. Her style of dancing is both traditional and expressive, and she teaches flamenco dance in her own school in the traditional Albaycin quarter of Granada, placing the main focus of her classes on the comprehension of the language of flamenco as an art form, and also the pleasure of dancing.


CusCus Flamenco includes musicians from both cultures, including flamenco guitar (Lolo de la Encarna), violin (Fathi Ben Yakoub) percussion (Mouhssine Koraichi) qanun (Aziz Samsaoui) and flamenco dance. Dancers that have collaborated/are collaborating with CusCus Flamenco include Irene La Serranilla, Cristina Aguilera, Irene Rueda, Kika Quesada, and Eva Manzano.

Sunday Night Jazz: Phoenician Blinds

Phoenician Blinds

Sunday night jazz @ The London Jukebox: the perfect way to wind down the weekend.
Phoenician Blinds are a London-based, jazz-leaning instrumental quartet with blends of straight-ahead jazz, hip-hop, and cinematic soundscapes.

It's the classic jazz quartet in a slightly different light. We work in an unusually organic way both live and in the studio, even in jazz terms. The tunes are mostly written at the piano and then brought to the studio where no one is given any musical guidelines, let alone any written music. We just roll and see what happens which gives the tunes a fresh feel and a sense that everyone really is meeting at the center.'

Influenced by the likes of Esbjörn Svensson Trio, Robert Glasper, and Avishai Cohen, this is music sure to make you groove and contemplate the essence of soulful music.

Piano, Fender Rhodes / Tom Sochas
Tenor Saxophone / Julian Knapp
Bass / Oli Cross

Ma'Grass: For Funk Sake

Ma'Grass Najwa

The London Jukebox presents...

Toppings on Funk basics
Ma'Grass is an idea born from the mind of Italian multi-instrumentalist and music producer Matteo Grassi UK based since 2006.
His aim is to make a difference in people’s life by bringing fun, joy and uplifting rythms and melodies through his music and performances.
This lover of the 70’s era drew his inspiration from Parliament Funkadelic, Bootsy Collins, Larry Graham, Sly and the Family Stone, Curtis Mayfield.
His many collaborations include many artists from different horizons, active in the UK and European scenes including Gizelle Smith (Jalapeno Records), Curisity Killed The Cat (RCA Records), Aurora Dawn (singer of Alabama Three, Columbia/SME Records), Boom Yeah, etc.

In 2007, London and its exciting multicultural flavours and rythms stimulated his creativity, giving birth to new songs, mainly based on Old School Funk vibe.
Matteo Grassi along with dedicated musicians and friends created an eclectic mix of Jazzy, Afro, Funky, Latino, Ragga and Rock. Their music quickly became a cocktail of Western Culture music with a touch of Afro and Latin-Americano sounds, sprinkled with spices from Past, Present and Future.

Ma’Grass has had the privilege to gig all over London and throughout Europe, in France “Plein Feux Festival” opening for Ben l’Oncle Soul (2014), Italy and Germany. Within the past 3 years they made thousands of people shake their body in many popular venues and crowded events, performed at events like The Hackney Wicked Festival 2011 which involved all the street arts community of East London and they showcased in venues such as Passing Clouds, Hackney Picture House, Kensington Roof Gardens, Ritzy and many more.

Each member of the band, is part of a bigger collective of musicians who often play for the local communities and public events including charities for Africa, larger summer festivals, and TV shows (The Voice France).
Among their public appearances they count stages shared with artists like Peter Andre, Tony Momrelle (Incognito), Zion Train, Stormzy, etc.
And when they are not on stage they are either music teacher for children, entertainers in Alzheimer’s Centres.

The current band is formed of seven musicians: Matteo Grassi (Bass/Vocals), Najwa Ezzaher (vocals), Chris Lee Reynold (guitarist), Alessio Barelli (drummer), Gabriele Pribetti (saxophone), Brendan Musk (trumpet), Patrick Kenny (trombone).

Ma’Grass’ debut album called “Fingers in the Socket” was released in March 2013 and was featured in multiple compilations released worldwide: Funk BBQ (2013), Bar Sound Funk Martini” (2013), Funk Barsound Deluxe (2014) and It’s funky time! (2015).
Very soon they will be honoured to reveal to you their first EP of a series of three called “Soul Fire”. Stay posted @Ma’Grass and Keep it groovy, always!

Munto Valdo

Munto Valdo Sawa Blues

Good music travels fast so joins us for a beautiful evening that feels like the sunset. Come down to listen to the sensitive guitar playing and dreamy, voice with distinctively textured, self-created loops and rhythms of Sawa Blues. The music has an airy, poetic feel that’s a bit Brazilian, a bit Cape Verdean, while keeping a toe in the world of international busking folk.

After three years playing with Eko Roosevelt's band, Valdo formed his own group, the Muntu Band, later named Mulema (the heart), and began recording, and performing in concerts. In 2000, Corporation Francaise organized a national tour in which Valdo performed in 10 Cameroon cities. The same year, Cameroon sound engineer Gilbert Moodio played a recording of a Valdo concert to a French producer; after an audition, Valdo was encouraged to move to France.

On moving to Paris, Valdo lived in Belleville, associated with young musicians, and played in jam sessions and concerts in the bars of Rue Oberkampf and Place Chatelet, either solo or with his group. He also played with Manu Dibango, Alpha Blondy, Ali Farka Touré, Lokua Kanza, Cheick Tidianne Seck, Tony Allen, Rido Bayonne, Etienne Mbappe, Stephane & Lionel Belmondo and Richard Bona.

Valdo released his first album "Gods and Devils – Moiye Na Muititi", in 2005. Following its release, he toured Africa, Europe and Asia, playing festivals and concert halls including the Queen Elizabeth Hall (London), New Morning (Paris), Womad (Carceres, Charlton Park and Singapore), the Théâtre de la Petite Reine (Tbilisi), The Sage (Newcastle), Festival Plein Sud & Festival Africolor (France), and Fespam (Republic of the Congo).

In 2008, Valdo moved to live and work in London, and in 2010, he was the support act for Ladysmith Black Mambazo's UK tour.

RODA DE CHORO with Alvorada and friends

RODA DE CHORO with Alvorada and friends

Alvorada and friends host a 'roda de choro'. Choro is a rich and uplifting style of instrumental music from Brazil, which emerged in the late 19th century from a mixture of European harmony with African rhythm. A 'roda de choro' is the choro equivalent of a folk 'session', an informal gathering where people gather to play and listen to choro. All choro musicians and students are welcome to participate. 

Alvorada are known as the UK's leading choro group. They explore choro influences from all over Brazil, and play a range of classics, contemporary tunes and their own original compositions. They have played extensively in London and the UK, and have just recorded their debut album, due for release in Spring 2019.

Sunday Night Jazz: The Cosimo Matassa Project

Sunday Night Jazz: The Cosimo Matassa Project

The Cosimo Matassa Project

Our first Sunday night jazz of the year with The Cosimo Matassa Project.

Transport yourself 60 years back in time and 3000 miles westwards with the sound of The Cosimo Matassa Project.

The Cosimo Matassa Project are a collective of musicians in London, UK, working to conjure up the unique rhythm ‘n’ blues flavours that emerged from New Orleans in the late 1940s and early 1950s. At the core of the band are pianist and arranger Al Dunn (Loudon Wainwright / Richard Thompson), singer and double bassist Dai Price (Dai & The Ramblers) and drummer Roy Pfeffer (The Big Smoke Family). They’re often joined by guest musicians from London’s rhythm ‘n’ blues scene, and members of our collective have played with the likes of Allen Toussaint, James Hunter and Van Morrison. Over the last couple of years the band have become a staple on the R’n’B circuit, gigging around London clubs and bars such as Nightjar in Old Street, Brasserie Zedel in Mayfair and Ronnie Scott’s in Soho.

The entire project is born out of respect for the artists who passed through Cosimo Matassa’s studios, a real love for the music and a desire to summon up the sheer joy that pervades all of Cosimo’s recordings. Playing tunes by well-known artists from that era such as Fats Domino and Big Joe Turner, the band also like to unearth lesser-known gems by the likes of Clarence ‘Frogman’ Henry, Dave Bartholomew and Tami Lynn, as well as throwing in a few of their original songs.

Expect stylish horn licks, soulful vocals and classic tunes that are guaranteed to get the dancefloor heaving."

Like James Hunter before him, frontman Dai Price is a man to watch." Phil Alexander (Mojo magazine)

Sura Susso for a Live Music Brunch

Originally from the Gambia, Surahata "Sura" Susso was born into a griot family, a tradition that originates from West Africa and refers to cultural figures that carry knowledge and the regional identity of their communities through song, music and poetry. Sura is the son of Mamudou Susso, one of the finest living kora players, and Fatou Binta Cissokho, who was a gifted singer and percussionis. It is no surprise that this young man has talent.

Sura came to the UK at the age of seventeen to tour as the percussionist in his brother’s band, The Seckou Keita Quintet. Tours with the quintet took them all around the world and provided an invaluable experience for Sura to be the professional musician he is today. He honours the role that his elder brother has played in supporting his musical journey. He stepped out in 2012 with the release of his debut album, Sila Kang. 

As a soloist, Sura has performed extensively around the world – In March 2012, he was honoured to be invited to play for her Royal Highness Queen Elizabeth II, as part of the opening ceremony for the Central Manchester City hospitals.

Jyotsna Srikanth

Jyotsna Srikanth

Hailing from Bangalore and now based in London, Jyotsna is Europe’s foremost Indian violinist. Her music illuminates Carnatic musical tradition in kaleidoscope colour. Approaching every musical interaction with a forward-thinking outlook and elastic expressivity, Jyotsna is just as likely be found reveling in raga rotations or jamming in free jazz, often marrying the two.

Jyotsna’s musical tutelage began at home guided by her mother, Ratna Srikantiah, a Carnatic vocalist and teacher. Dedicated from a young age, as a girl Jyotsna would practice for six hours daily and attend concerts in the evenings. At the age of six she saw violin legend Kunnakudi Vaidyanathan perform and was inspired to take up the string instrument, not looking back since. She trained under musical greats including R.R. Keshavamurthy and V.S. Narasimhan, making her professional debut at the age of nine.

Jyotsna went on to begin a successful career lending her talent to the film industry, playing on over two hundred South Indian cinematic soundtracks. Upon moving to London her work expanded to include television and festival engagements including work for the Discovery Channel, National Geographic, WOMAD, BBC Proms and the Red Violin Festival. She also lectures in music, having delivered her discourse at the University of Cambridge and Liverpool University.


Currently Jyotsna enjoys a demanding career as an eminent solo musician. Her 2013 album Call of Bangalore (Riverboat Records) cemented her position as a ‘major instrumentalist of vision and imagination’ (fRoots) and ‘an extraordinary and versatile violinist’ (The Guardian).

2014 sees the release of Bangalore Dreams (United Sound). Bangalore Dreams is Jyotsna’s meditation on a theme of encounters; east meets west, ornamentation meets groove, India meets jazz. Her violin sings out vivid melodies and redolent ragas of her beloved Bangalore, twisted through with a strong jazz flavour.

Garance & The Mitochondries

Garance & The Mitochondries

The London Jukebox presents..

Garance and the Mitochondries (alternative experimental post musette folk)

London’s French extrovert Garance Louis has pulled out all the stops with her second album Balance L’Aurore, working with Portico Quartet producer Sonny Johns on a musical odyssey that showcases everything good in London’s live music scene. Her second album sees Garance come of age as an arranger and producer alongside her distinctive songwriting style.

Growing up in the independent 'Cinémaginaire' in the South of France, Garance ’s childhood was filled with the sights and sounds of the movies - transporting her around the world without leaving Perpignan. The sense of adventure and creativity is plain to hear on every track, referencing a joyful array of experiences from the last 2 years. Having busked her way across the world, through New Orleans, Brazil, Portugal, and Italy, she documented these adventures in songs about absurd abstraction, procrastination, star-crossed open relationships; intoxicating love and subsequent break-ups, and rebirth in the Amazonian forest.

With the backing of her avid support which helped her crowdfund over £5000 towards the album, Garance drew together some of London’s finest instrumentalists to make this record. The album features horn section masterminded by jazz legend Ewan Bleach, string arrangements by Fred Thomas, heavy synths by Dave Maric, tremolo guitar and full rhythm section. Every track has a rich and distinct orchestration, making the album a celebration of musical daring.

The album launch is on the 3rd May 2018 at the Total Refreshment Centre with East London promoter Woodburner - Garance will create an immersive, one-off show involving 15 musicians from the new record which is bound to be full of color.
