Campfire Club London: Millicent Chapanda, Germa Adan
  • Master Shipwright's Palace
    SE8 3JF
  • Saturday 22nd August 6:00pm until 11:00pm
This August, we are gathering in beautiful green spaces in London, Bristol and Sheffield to hear extraordinary live music.

In the simple way that people have done for thousands of years, we will come together around the fire to enjoy music, food, drink, and the company of others.

  There will be no on-site catering available; you are welcome to bring your own food. Please do not bring your own alcohol, as we will be running a bar.   Millicent Chapanda

Millicent Chapanda (Milli Chapanda) is a proud cultural artist with a vibrant mission to bring the lived experience of women in Zimbabwe onto international world music stages.

Millicent continues to defy all odds, and the stigma previously associated with women mbira players, as a soloist. Milli’s mbira playing and singing style is distinctive and appreciated in many prestigious venues, performing at the highly acclaimed Moseley Folk & Arts Festival 2018, Afrika Festival Hertme 2018, The Symphony Hall (THSH) 2019, Rush Hour Blues – Jazzlines 2019, Shambala Festival 2019, IKON Gallery 2018/9, Sofar Sounds Manchester 2019, Journeys Festival(ArtReach) 2018, Midlands Arts Centre (MAC) 2018/9, Birmingham Museum & Arts Gallery 2018/9 to name a few.   Germa Adan

Musician, composer and singer-songwriter, Germa is known for her ability to write and perform in the style of a storyteller with a strong undercurrent of social consciousness at the heart of her music and a desire to explore themes of the past and the modern day. Her recent song-writing and compositions are influenced by Haitian, American and British folk, as well as her classical training. Germa Adan was born in Les Cayes, Haiti, lived in the USA and currently resides in Birmingham, United Kingdom. Her journey and autobiography have a major influence on her art and musical practice.   “Creole folk star Germa Adan recorded one of the great LPs of 2017, the rare beauty, Kenbe Fèm… Germa, right now is an incredibly powerful, unique and fresh voice on the UK folk scene.” – Outside Left Magazine
