Bare milk bare bones is a night of carefully curated voice-led, stripped-back musical performances from some of London’s most exciting vocalists and wordsmiths. Vocalists and wordsmiths will perform new arrangements of their own material, preview new work and experiment with playful improv.
This event is curated and hosted by Nadeem Din-Gabisi, an exciting and talented musician who has appeared on BBC Radio 1Xtra.
Nadeem‘s music radiates a determined and un-rescinded energy. Its message – immersed within a cocktail of grime, hip-hop, highlife akin to punk in its fervent cries, charged lyrics and refusal to subscribe to any particular lane – deftly takes the listener through his personal journey.
His debut album, ‘POOL’, examines moments of trauma and happiness in childhood. It uses those moments as a diving board to explore mental health issues and coping mechanisms of many young black men, born in inner and outer London. It questions and attempts to answer why some of these men swim, why some sink and why some others don’t enter the POOL.
POOL was featured as one of Clash Magazine’s most underrated albums of 2022 and Nadeem was selected by Jamz Supernova as one of the 20 artists in her class of 2023.
