seenlondon

Jaga Jazzist, one of the most celebrated and influential of Norway’s post-jazz bands, will be debuting at Roundhouse’s ‘In The Round’ Series on 27th January, 2017. The Roundhouse, one of the best performing arts spaces, and a hub of inspiration for artists in London, is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, by announcing the return of ‘In the Round’, a series of intimate performances set in the iconic Main Space.

Jaga have always been known for having created a sound unlike anyone else, with influences by artists as diverse as Gil Evans, Radiohead, My Bloody Valentine, Tortoise, Oslo 13, Motorpsycho, Fela Kuti & Steve Reich. Their live shows are driven by an arsenal of multi-instrumentalists who give their music a hypnotic intensity that brings the music to powerful life.

For this special performance and Roundhouse debut, expect to hear music from their recent electronic-heavy, Ninja Tune release: ‘Starfire’, alongside hits from their illustrious back catalogue.

Cocktails at the General Store

SEEN is tireless in her cocktail research, and very much enjoyed travelling to Highbury last week to try The General Store’s new summer cocktail menu and to check out the new interior. She was delighted to sample a Honey Mimosa, very sweet and fruity and just the ticket after a hot journey. It was, as its name suggests, a Mimosa with just a touch of honey.

Canaletto: A Drawing Workshop with Alexandra Blum

SEEN has long been an admirer of Alexandra Blum’s liminal and apocalyptic renderings of London’s urban spaces, in which the capital seems ever-changing. It is the artist’s job to capture not only space but the passage of time itself.

Love Hunt at the British Museum

SEEN had the pleasure (pun intended) of being invited to a ‘Love Hunt’ at the British Museum. The museum, founded in 1753, is committed to preserving art, culture and history, and has collected around 8 million objects. These artefacts come from every corner of the world, revealing a fragment of many significant moments in time, from Mesopotamia to the Vikings; from the Inuits to the Indians. So, when one embarks on a visit to the world famous British Museum, where does one start?
