The Engines Orchestra unites London’s most adventurous young classical, jazz, world and folk musicians in a community that works closely with other artists to push the boundaries and develop audiences for groundbreaking, new music. They work with composers from all genres, animators, filmmakers and dancers to create accessible ways into challenging environments. 

For this show they have teamed up with Nigerian-born guitarist Femi Temowo to perform music from his critically acclaimed 3rd solo release The Music is the Feeling. Known for his work with artists like Amy Winehouse, Dee Dee Bridgewater, The Roots and Soweto Kinch to name a few, Temowo's music explores a unique blend of afro, jazz and folk. 
His collaboration with Engines Orchestra results in a beautiful tapestry of head nodding grooves, contemplative melodies and heartfelt harmony delivered with a unique flair and a contagious feel-good mood that carries every audience along with them.
Line up: Phil Meadows (Conductor/Orchestrator), Femi Temowo (guitar), Jez Franks (guitar), Andy Champion (double bass), Dave Ingamells (drums), Emily Davis, Minn Majoe (violins), Matt Maguire (viola), Zosia Jagodzinska (cello), Brass and Winds TBC,
