Art Film, Music & Spoken Word from the Diaspora

NUMBI live shows are a series of cross-cultural events from the Diaspora. The programme aims to bring a visible African Diaspora especially Somali cultural presence into London's landscape through collaborations and cultural dialogue.

NUMBI will include music, spoken word, dance, visual arts and electronic media (Film) (this event will be the main Launch of  'Scarf' kudu arts cross cultural magazine) elements. NUMBI is influenced and inspired by traditional and contemporary Somali culture as well as the fusion of forms created by  artists from the Somali diaspora and those collaborating with them.

Much of the work will rely less on language, aiming to make NUMBI accessible to diverse participants and audiences. The elements of Somali and English spoken word will be based on common linguistic experiences of the Somali diaspora and we are very proud to have been working this year in partnership with the poetry translation centre who have translated the work of two very talented Somali poets to English and their work will be performed for the first time at this event.

The principal artists include Faysal Aw-Cabdi and Caasha-Luul Maxamuud and many more.
