Time 19:00

Price £16.76

The international musical adventurers The Turbans bring their exciting traditional near-eastern and eastern-European styles to the Islington Assembly Hall for their most extravagant show to date.

International musical adventurers The Turbans bind together music from ‘manywhere’, igniting audiences with the bacchanalian spirit of the Eastern Mediterranean. Drawing on the rich cultural heritage of both the Levantine and Balkan regions, they create original music for the 21st century, inspired by ancient melodies.

Sonically huge and visually arresting, the interstellar live show embodies the skill, experience and passion of intrepid instrumental explorers from Turkey, Bulgaria, Israel, Iran, Spain, Greece and England, pooling their energy and creativity in a spirit of generosity and openness that is so needed in these troubled global times.

The Turbans are supported by award winners at the world renowned Celtic Connections Festival. Glasgow power-trio The Langan Band create a dynamic sound that is rooted in Celtic Folk but encompasses Balkan, Roma and Flamenco elements, fuelled by a visceral punk spirit.

With a deceptively stripped down line-up of vocals, guitar, fiddle, bass and percussion, The Langan Band never fail to get the crowd dancing. They are as much at home on a huge festival stage playing to thousands of people as they are playing an intimate Scottish Village Hall.
