For our first weekend we are joined by THE SAGES 竹林七贤

Tickets just £5!

The Sages (⽵竹林林七贤) are a new world music fusion band project based in London that draws inspirations from different music elements throughout time and history. With the main focus on traditional East Asian music, the band mainly consists of young students currently studying at SOAS, University of London, as well as members of the SOAS Chinese Silk and Bamboo Ensemble. As a diverse cosmopolitan generation growing up under an age of globalisation and other social changes, the band aims to explore the concepts between “East” and “West”, cultural identity and musical “genres” through both original composition and adaption of traditional folk music. 

Since the formation of the band in November 2017, The Sages have played at numerous venues and events such as the Oxford 2018 Chinese New Year Gala, Rich Mix main stage, Sounds of the World concert series in Greenwich & Lewisham Young People's Theatre, The Curious Arts Festival 2018 in Southampton, SOAS Graduation 2018, The Golden Hinde, and were recently featured on an episode of BBC Radio 3’s ‘In Tune’ presented by Katie Derham as well as ‘A World in London’ with DJ Ritu.
