A one-off event presenting new work by songwriter Daudi Matsiko, DJ and producer Mia Koden and musician and visual designer Obeka.

Here to Remember is a commission for Black and Black mixed heritage artists to explore their own personal experiences of history, memory and lineage.

Hosted by Magic EKJ, the night will feature three performances and the opportunity to hear more about the work from the artists themselves.

On the decks, we’ll be joined by Hur̃guf whose tunes go from percussive club sounds to feel-good classics, from the North West of England to the horn of Africa.

"Being able to and encouraged to create artistic work specifically focused on the experiences, histories and stories of the Black community and global majority is something I will cherish. I’m certain it will have an impact on my journey as an artist, songwriter and storyteller."

Daudi Matsiko
