Julia Biel

Julia Biel - vocals / guitar / piano, Idris Rahman - bass / bvs, Rob Updegraff - lead guitar, Ayo Salawu - drums

A self-taught singer and songwriter, pianist and guitarist with a sharp perspective on life and love, a voice as electrifying as it is hypnotic, and a fondness for pop song structures as much as for jazz harmony, Julia Biel inhabits distinctive musical territory combining the raw emotional power of her old-school-jazz-sounding vocal with backdrops that include elements of 1960s psychedelia, electronica-imbued acoustics, driving electric guitars and epic, cinematic arrangements.

Tipped as 'the best British vocalist to emerge in an age' by THE INDEPENDENT and turning heads with her performances wherever she goes, 2015 saw the release of Julia Biel's highly anticipated and acclaimed second album, 'Love Letters and Other Missiles', nominations for a MOBO Award and an Urban Music Award as well as a packed touring schedule taking her worldwide.

Fast forward to 2017 and a third album release is on the horizon. First single 'Wasting Breath' is released on May 12, 2017 to audiences worldwide.

A voice of supreme subtlety and honeyed depth. Her mesmerizing voice and magnetic stage presence should encourage many to follow where she leads. -THE GUARDIAN

illconsidered

Idris Rahman - Saxophone, Leon Brichard - Bass, Emre Ramazanoglu - Drums, Satin Singh - percussion

Illconsidered are a brand new band comprising four phenomenal musicians at the top of their game, interacting with each other to create freely improvised music, based loosely around simple pre-written themes or composed on the spot. Deep grooves and plaintive melodies ranging from whispered chants to monstrous climaxes, the group react to the mood of the audience and the sonics of the room to create music that is unique to the moment. Idris Rahman on sax, Leon Brichard on bass, Emre Ramazanoglu on drums and Satin Singh on percussion. Fresh from a critically acclaimed debut last month at the Jazz Cafe, they are looking forward to bringing their unique brand of improvised grooves to the Crypt.

Wonky, mad, intense vibes at the cutting edge of contemporary UK improvised music.

GILAD ATZMON SPEAKS

WEDNESDAY JULY 19th DOORS 8pm ENTRY FREE

GILAD ATZMON SPEAKS - A philosophical outlook on the current British political confusion.

Internationally acclaimed jazz artist and composer appears at the Crypt partly under his alternative identity as a political commentator to talk about his new book Being in Time - A Post Political Manifesto.

In the post-political universe in which we live, much of humanity has been reduced to serve the interests of big money and oligarchy. Left and Right have become indistinguishable and meaningless. The freedom to think openly is now within the domain of nostalgia. Our Western Liberal 'utopia' has turned into an Orwellian catastrophe, and we the people, have been left bewildered and impoverished. Being in Time is a courageous attempt to grasp the intellectual developments that led towards this dystopia.

With musical excerpts from Gilad and guest musicians.

CAMBERWELL FAIR AFTER PARTY featuring TANTZ SATURDAY JULY 22nd - DOORS OPEN 8pm FREE ENTRY

Leeds' based klezmer/Balkan beats/gypsy jazz bohemians Tantz have taken the UK world/roots music scene apart with their full-on musical attack on audiences across the length and breadth of this nation. With awesome musical chops, an energy not seen since punk rock's halcyon days and ability to turn a gentle world music festival crowd into a heaving, pogoing mosh-pit, there's something special about this band that manages to touch almost everyone. Pushing the boundaries of klezmer!

Camberwell Fair is a free entry music festival and market taking place on Camberwell Green from 12 - 9pm. This is the third Camberwell Fair in modern times following on from 2015 and 2016, but there was an ancient Fair on the same site from 1279 to 1855. We are pleased to be hosting the evening party for this celebration of the diverse people, community and culture of Camberwell.
