Music Events

Above the railway is a huge underground chamber half the size of Shakespeare’s Globe. Before the trains came this was an underground theatre and concert hall. Recently listed by Time Out as one of ‘London’s magical music venues’ and described by Radio 4’s Front Row as an underground cathedral. Today we are pleased to host a busy programme of music events above and below ground, from opera to world music to jazz, in what Hi Fi World described as ‘an underground recording studio’.

Brazilian music may be known worldwide, but rarely does one have a chance to witness instrumental performances for solo guitar. Rafael Valim, a talented guitarist from São Paulo, will explore classical themes by composers such as Garoto, Dilermando Reis, João Pernambuco and Canhoto, among others, taking you on a musical trip that you are unlikely to forget.

A versatile musician, Rafael’s unique style merges the richly eloquent classical fingering technique with delicate-sounding melodies and elaborate chords. When playing, he elegantly glides between different musical genres, interpreting the compositions with great sensitivity and emotion.

A journey back to You
in the Thames Tunnel Shaft: Friday 19th September 2014 7.30pm

Get comfortable and breathe in the soulful and mystical sounds and aromas of Music Within: Jetty’s caressing, gentle and aethereal voice perfectly melds with magical and hypnotisingly exotic hang and guitar patterns.

Inspired by each other’s musical dialogues and the audience’s response Music Within perform musical stories in the moment. Jetty sings about the inner conflicts and doubts we all face every day: The everlasting quest for the ‘right way’ and serenity, longing for true love and enthusiasm in life, about breaking and reviving and how we wish things to be…

Through their music the trio share their personal experiences with the audience and suggest ways in which we can free ourselves and each other from the everyday confusions and dramas.

For this one-of-a-kind fusion event Music Within will turn the entire Thames Tunnel Shaft into a spiritual haven with yoga mats, cushions and blankets, surrounded by an ocean of tealights. You are welcome to sit or lie comfortably, and take in the music in your own personal way – whether by just listening, meditating, cuddling, doing yoga exercises or through expressive dance.

Dive into deeper dimensions of your ocean, right down to the hidden treasure where the real You already knows which way to go and what is right and good for you.
