Revolutionary Radio Episode 8

November 2014. Always something new musically at SOAS. Last week, the Student Union goes to Calais, a solidarity gathering with migrants, musicians and activists. Musical participation by the SOAS Ceilidh Band. This week the SOAS Rebetiko Band, planning for our March 2015 tour to Istanbul. Next week a special Kurdish solidarity session in the JCR, working towards the production of a songbook arising out of the Kurdish Songbook Project. The following week the first of our ?Arabic Music Sessions @ SOAS?. Long-awaited? building the groove? Not to mention the formation of the SOAS Guerrilla Choir, ready for action on demos and picket lines. Wild about song!
