LIFEM 14
 Crossing Cultures 

 29 Oct – 01 Nov 2014 


LIFEM is back, this time focusing on Africa and South America. Presenting world and UK premieres as well as artists rarely seen on British shores, this year’s impressive line-up features Badi Assad (Brazil), Gaio de Lima (Brazil), Ami Koita (Mali), Mosi Conde (Guinea), Amira Kheir (Sudan), Amadou Diagne (Senegal), Carmen Souza (Cape Verde) and Maiuko (Mozambique). With four nights dedicated to the Southern Hemisphere’s hot rhythms and melodies – and boundary-crossing music explorations guaranteed – LIFEM is one of today’s most compelling festivals.
