Every Wednesday 1.10 – 2.00pm at Saint Stephen’s and Building Reconcilation Hope exhibition in November,

10 Nov Juan Gabriel Sound Sculpture

With Mongolian overtones, humming bowls and the evocation of Native Americans with his drums and chants, Juan’s music is a compelling aid to lunchtime meditation. Rooted in Christianity, he explores musical mysticism across the planet.

17 Nov Songs of a recovering alcoholic

CPS‘s voice has been compared to Lou Reed and Johnny Cash. He enthuses about music as a therapy that’s kept him dry many years. With lyrics such as, “I would have felt safer in a broken statue’s arms”, he sings about the gritty side of life. He may include poems by the likes of William Blake and Philip Larkin.

24 Nov Bulawayo Zimbabwe dance music

Cecilia Ndhlovu’s entrancing mbira thumb-piano and joyous Ndebele and Shona vocals take listeners on a journey through Zimbabwean tradition. Growing up in southern Zimbabwe, she was known at school as ‘magida omncane’, or little dancer. At 16 she joined the national dance troupe, Black Umfolosi, and toured the world with Zimbabwean star, Oliver Mtukudzi, before settling in Bristol.

Just gone: November 3 Royal Court Players performed baroque music.
