WORLD AIDS DAY JAMM: DELE SOSIMI QUARTET
A line-up of London's most diverse musical talent will play at Brixton Jamm on Saturday 1 December to celebrate the 30th anniversary of World AIDS Day.
Organised by STOPAIDS, World AIDS Day Jamm will see performances from an array of exciting DJs, upcoming artists and world music legends, including Dele Sosimi, one of the world's most active and electric musicians on the Afrobeat scene.
Erica McKoy, Worldwide FM Producer and DJ will play a set mixing a variety of sounds from around the globe, including broken beat, jazz and electronic music. Other acts performing on the night include multi-instrumental, critically acclaimed group Hejira, post-punk DJs In Flames of NTS, and Soho Radio DJ Emily Dust.
The event will mark the finale of ENDAIDS2030, a weeklong festival bringing together the domestic and international HIV-AIDS sectors to raise awareness among the public about HIV, and increase political commitment and funding for the disease. The proceeds will go to further building awareness and engagement in the Global HIV response.
Mike Podmore, Director of STOPAIDS, said: "We are incredibly excited to host such an eclectic line up of artists for World AIDS Day Jamm reminding us that, across the globe, we are united by our efforts to end AIDS by 2030. Everyone who is passionate about this issue is invited to join us at the event, particularly young people who bear a disproportionate burden of AIDS-related deaths, and who's empowerment as leaders in the HIV response is essential to reaching our goal."
Presented by Brixton Jamm.
This is an 18+ event.
