Consistently bringing the very best from the free improvised end of things Mopomoso’s September programme has three distinct and intriguing sets.

Winters / Marshall / Adato trio

The fine voice of Portia Winters and the percussion/electronics forays of Illi Adato are joined by the astounding and much in demand tuba player Oren Marshall. A Mopomoso debut for this established trio, well known to the London free improvisation scene, they promise a music of energy, colour and lightness of touch.

Sylvia Hallett

Sylvia Hallett is a violinist who works both as a composer and as an improviser, and has had pieces performed in Britain and Europe including work for a.o BBC Radio Plays, The Royal Shakespeare Company, The Young Vic and with dancer/choreographers Miranda Tufnell, From Here to Eternity, Eva Karczag and live art puppeteers DooCot. Her last appearance to a packed house at Mopomoso received a standing ovation from the appreciative crowd. It’s great to have her back!
