Music Night: A Real Job Is to Make Something
An evening of songs about work and migration by Haringey-based music collective Kourelou
‘Kourelou’ is a Greek word meaning ‘patchwork’. Musicians of Cypriot, Greek, Turkish and Balkan heritage draw on both traditional and contemporary sources to make new sounds in London.
Forty years of manufacturing duvets, sleeping bags and country clothing are over. As the Wearite factory on West Green Road closes, A Real Job Is to Make Something highlights a place and community of work, and considers the value of making things in present times. This musical evening compliments an exhibition at the Wearite factory with new works by Rosie Edwards, Mikhail Karikis with Rob Crosse, Kate Owens, Kate Keara Pelen, Yorgos Petrou, Michael Taiwo
An AIR project supported by Arts Council England, Haringey Council and Cyprus High Commission.
