We are taking Live Music Thursdays on a voyage into the summer season with a programme of exciting ‘alfresco’ live music events.


For this edition of Live Music Thursday we have selected two talented musicians with two different but powerful sounds.


The pair met in Liverpool’s Zanzibar Club, simultaneously captivated by the others' distinct and contrasting sound. Anwar and Dave resolved to meet and explore the possibilities and avenues that were presented by their ingenuities.


The sound they produce is a unique blend; steeped in Swahili and East African musical heritage, and underpinned by a British folk sensibility. Dave’s acoustic guitar complements Anwar’s oud, with the artists' shared passion and intensity producing a haunting and emotive sound.


The pair have already clocked up several notable support slots including The West African Blues Project and Malian legends Amadou & Mariam, plus appearances at festivals including Fire in the Mountain and the Liverpool Arab Arts Festival and Africa Oye Festival.
