Omar Souleyman began in 2009 after revealing "Dabke 2020". Since then he has cultivated a strong fanbase, coming back in 2017 with "To Syria, With Love". He will be touring soon, with shows in Cambridge, Amsterdam and Macclesfield.
In our most ambitious residency ever, we welcome the multi-faceted Bradley Zero to curate 12 weeks of club nights and live shows from Friday 5th April to Friday 21st June. He’ll be reaching around the globe as he invites 80+ artists covering Syrian dabke to Detroit techno via Angolan kuduro, London jazz and literally everything else in between. With an enormous passion for music, discovery, dancing and community, Bradley epitomises what we are looking for in our next resident. Often described as ‘the tastemaker of his generation’, Bradley’s influence on the London scene is unparalleled, and we couldn’t be more proud to become the next part of his journey. The world is coming to London. - The Basement: Former Syrian wedding singer Omar Souleyman joins us in the main room for a set of Bhangra-infused rock and unexpected vocal rangey riffs, giving you a real flavour of his roots.
