Occasional blog. Reviews, comment, news and collated content about jazz, world, folk and contemporary music — and associated cultures — in London.

Formerly known as Culture Capital. The newer title is inspired by Thelonious Monk’s classic tune Crepuscule with Nellie, and by twilight gig-going.

    Really enjoying your posts. Wanted to let you know at a piece called Why-Fronts A Contemporary Lap Dance by emerging choreographer Treacle Holasz has been selected to be showcased at the Resolution! 2014 festival. I thought it would be of interest to you and your readers as att the forefront of Holasz’ work is her Irish and Ukrainian heritage, not only does this manifest itself in her choreographic approach, but musically her performance will feature Tad Sargent a bodhran player and a traditional Ukrainian folk singer, proudly encapsulating Holasz’ cultural heritage. Do you have an email address that I can send a full press release to please?

  2. Hi

    Mimika is a London based 16 piece balkan space jazz orchestra presenting the new project about a future Martian civilization of humans and Earth’s society collapse. The project will be released as an album titled “A Place Glowing A Brilliant Red” in the next months. Until then, please feel free to listen and if you get inspired, maybe give us a word.

    In this tune our Martian explorers rediscover their Earthly history.


    It’s free download! Enjoy!


  3. Culture Capital. I wanted to get in touch about an Italian Klezmer trio – Minimal Klezmer – who will be coming to London to play some shows in London in December, following gigs in Italy and Hungary in November. Their website is here: http://www.minimalklezmer.com

    We – Janus Sounds Limited – will be releasing their excellent self-titled album to coincide with their London tour.
