Revolutionary Radio Programme No. 7 Tue, 2013-10-15 19:34

Brilliant year for music-making at SOAS. Ceilidh Band went to Paris in February, did a ceilidh halfway up the Eiffel Tower. Then to Istanbul for St Patrick?s Night, playing in the James Joyce Bar. From there we went down to Iraqi Kurdistan to do a Nowruz gig in the hills behind Duhok ? and some of the team carried on to Armenia and Georgia. August we did a ceilidh tour to Dartmoor in Devon. The Rebetiko Band toured to Paris and to the Greek island of Hydra for the Rebetiko Gathering. Not to mention our amazing Rebetiko jam sessions every Monday night in the SOAS JCR. Plus we did a couple of brilliant Kurdish nights. All up on Youtube, if you like that sort of thing:
