Bebop Spoken There

Jeremy Pelt: "I'm so much into melodies and into sound, and the presence of sound, that I don't necessarily want to try to play in between the cracks of a note." - (DownBeat November 2020)

The Things They Say!

Hudson Music: Lance's "Bebop Spoken Here" is one of the heaviest and most influential jazz blogs in the UK.

Rupert Burley (Dynamic Agency): "BSH just goes from strength to strength".

Elina Duni & Rob Luft Play For Jazz.Coop and The Globe


(Press release)
Sunday 17 May, 8pm (‘doors open’ 7.45pm)
Online performance on Facebook and YouTube

We can’t run gigs at The Globe currently but this WON’T STOP US bringing you the very best new music! We are pleased to announce the third of our exclusive livestream concerts.

On Sunday 17 May at 8pm we’re delighted to be able to bring you an exclusive and intimate concert by Elina Duni and Rob Luft, which we will stream live to you through Facebook and YouTube.

For this new project, called Songs of Love and Exile, Swiss-Albanian jazz singer Elina Duni is joined by guitarist and BBC New Generation Jazz Artist Rob Luft, one of the rising stars of London’s flourishing contemporary jazz scene. Luft’s playing incorporates echoes of West African high-life, Celtic folk and textural minimalism. His joyously original sound finds an ideal counterpart in Elina Duni’s vocals. Together, they take us on a journey through timeless folk songs which still resonate so truly today, as well as playing their co-written original material about contemporary issues facing us all.

Check out videos of this amazing duo here:

So that Elina and Rob can get paid, we’d like to ask you to pay a small ‘entrance fee’, which we recommend should be £5. If you are able to pay a bit more this will be really welcome at this time when gig income for musicians has completely stopped and is unlikely to return in the very near future.

TO ATTEND THE GIG PLEASE DO THE FOLLOWING:
1. Make a donation via the following link. https://bit.ly/3dwRxyB Donate what you can afford, £5 is the suggested minimum.
2. When we have received notification of your donation we will send you an email with instructions on how to view the livestream on both Facebook and YouTube. Please note that it may take several hours for us to respond.
3. Please do not leave it to the last minute to access Facebook or YouTube. ‘Doors open’ at 7,45pm on Sunday 17 May to give you time to check your set up and get comfortable.
