The North African tones of Karama comes to Hoxton SquareKarama brings together a musical landscape of tones from both the East and West. Formed by Moroccan oud player and composer Soufian Saihi in 2011, his compositions fuse tradition with modernity, finding inspiration from the sacred Gnawa music, North African and Classical Arabic music.
Karama's songs tell the story of the immigrant, the homeless, technology and the Arab Spring. Their music wanders through diverse sonic landscapes, treading through the meditative, melodic and funk. A genuinely amazing fusion of instruments and band members from all over the planet. With members from Venezuela, Spain, Japan, Morocco and the UK, this is truly world music.
