Norwegian TV and Charity Gig at Pangea Project on 11/11
October 21, 2009
A few years ago I was at a Performance Audition at LTU and there was a Norwegian film crew there filming. They liked my music and asked me if we could do some filming together, when I received my LTU Busking License and my first time playing in the LU. So we did it and it was a really joyful experience for me. A few weeks ago, May contacted me saying she had been going through the archives and was wondering if I was still around?. How bizarre, when at the beginning of my life in London they filmed me and now when I am nearing the end of my PhD and my new album is finished, they contact me again. Strange how the cosmic magician works!
So May and Kari Grete will be coming from Norway, plus camera man and we will have a lovely day. I plan to sing at Canary Wharf at 8 am, then go to SOAS so we can film some music there and afterwards a Charity gig at night which Joshana Lovage, Rosie from Pangea and I are organising. We have a great line up for the evening, and everyone is putting their time and energy in for free to help the typhoon victims in the Phillipines. Heres' whats happening on the night of the 11/11
AMURTEL Philippines Typhoon Fundraiser The floods have left many homeless.... Typhoon Ondoy battered Manila over a month ago, fatal for hundreds and displacing an estimated 2 million people, the majority losing their homes. The situation there still remains desperate. The global charity AMURT/EL immediately set up volunteers and distributed all they could, and continue to serve the worst affected communities in Manila. The people of the Manila need help and this event is an evening of music and entertainment to raise funds to continue to support the people who have been worst affected by this calamity. Thank you for you support and involvement, we hope you come and enjoy the evening!
