Eternal Song - Stories from the Kalevala

The Kalevala is the national epic of Finland, containing stories some 5,000 years old. Stories of Creation, the birth of song, the origin of fire, unfolding in an ancient world, rich in the spirits of forest, sea and sky. Nick Hennessy brings out the song in the story and the story in the song. He is a powerful, passionate performer - wordsmith, singer and musician. He has travelled in Finland and the Russian Karelia and in 2000 he won the 6th World Championship of the Finno-Ugric epic singing.

The Curse of Kali
Wednesday 25th February 2004 8pm £5/£3

On the red sands of the southern tip of India stands an ancient temple. It tilts towards the sea as though about to fall in. At a high tide, the sea sweeps through the courtyard while the wind wails past the pillared corridors. According to the local people it is the cry of eterenal suffering, of souls under a never-ending curse... The story of a dangerous bargain with a goddess, the sacrifice of a dancer and the overpowering love of a father. Seema Anand captivates her audience, telling ancient myth for modern times. she dares to ask the question: is it possible to carve out one¹s own fate?
After the show - music by Nasha Records in the bar -

291 Digital Evenings
Wednesday 21st January 2004, 8pm, Entry free

im presents inspired forays into choppy beats and sine wave melodies, hinting at the syncopated structures of jazz, two step and drum & bass. The sound of sicamore is both personal and endearing. Loose, patchwork tunes offering strong melodies and heart wrenching lyrical observations, warm, clever, alienated and joyous.
Orphan revisits the repetitive rhythms and discordant melodies of techno, as she twists the form to create an atmosphere which is at once machinic and organic. Makinoises minimal compositions use the specific qualities of the glitch to weave a flickering tapestry of deep melodic gestures and subtle rhythms. Rossique will be bringing a varied box of vinyl for your listening pleasure.
