Aar Maanta is a Somali musician whose music embraces an eclectic mix of styles including influences from rock and reggae jostling with traditional Arabic and Somali music.

Tahriib (meaning irregular migration) is the first studio album created by London-based Somali artist Aar Maanta and his multicultural band The Urban Nomads.

The album flows between genres, mixing traditional Somali music with funk, jazz and reggae influenced beats. Written in the traditional Somali poetic form using allegory and alliteration the album tackles issues of importance to the large Somali community in the Diaspora and those back in horn of Africa.

Joining the bill is special guest Maryam Mursal, one of Somalia’s greatest voices and ‘Real World Records’ artist.

Presented by The Jazz Cafe.

This is an 18+ event.
