LAPP is a multifaceted artist that continually transforms his style and sound with jazz, electro, folk and whatever sound that seems appropriate at the time. LEMZI and “The Bandem” have been performing separately for years and collectively for just over a year. Likened to from everything The Roots to Kano, this set will range from spoken word, hip-hop and Jazz music.

Gnome House is curating an exhibition and cultural event protesting violence against young people. We are seeking submissions from all spectrums of artistic expression. The exhibition was initially inspired by the student activists from Parkland, Florida who are advocating for stricter gun control in the USA. But recently there have been several terrible acts of violence committed very close to Gnome House in London – so the curators feel compelled to use their creative energies to make a positive statement against the violence happening in our own community.
A night at The Birds, 692 High RD Leytonstone, London, E11 3AA - featuring a variety of styles and artists, come and watch LEMZI in his hometown, tickets online for just £8
