An Award winning Czech singer is to play an intimate club night to kick start Noise of Art’s spring programme and launch a new club in Woodbridge.
This March and April Noise of Art is holding a series of events in London to start its 2017 programme. And to kick-off the events, Noise of Art founder Ben Osborne, who also started the Woodbridge Art and Music festival, is teaming-up with singer Maella, winner of Best Song Award at the 2017 Czech Music Awards in Prague. The pair will play a friends and family club night in Woodbridge, which also launches a new series of club nights at The Crown – Woodbridge’s renown hotel and restaurant.
As well as being a fast rising star in her home country, Maella’s effortless vocal style has recently been winning plaudits in London for her raunchy soulful voice and diverse fusion of influences, which include PJ Harvey, Janis Joplin and Massive Attack.
London nightlife bible Time Out says DJ Ben Osborne’s sets “please us very much indeed and see anything from classic techno, funk, galactic house, deep down and dirty disco and other dancefloor dynamite do the rounds.“
The night at The Crown in Woodbridge starts at 7pm and is free entry, but you’re advised to register for free tickets in advance.
The Woodbridge event will be followed by a series of shows in London venues such as the National Portrait Gallery, Big Chill Bar, The Hog, Kamio, The Lockside and Jazz Cafe – where Noise of Art is appearing as part of Convergence and Bluedot festivals. And, from 16 March to 9 April, Noise of Art and Red Gallery, London, are teaming-up to present French Touch – the first exhibition of photographs, film and artwork documenting the story of French electronic music from the start of the 20th century to the present day. A compilation album of rare French electronics is also being released by Lo Recordings as part of Noise of Art’s exhibition.
