The music promoter and community arts organisation Tse Tse Fly Middle East will be making its London debut at IKLECTIK on Saturday 9th September. The night will feature a curated selection of experimental films, a Q&A with Tse Tse Fly founder Simon Coates and live performances from Kareem Samara (pictured), Dushume and Sonic Imperfections affiliates Tonal Liberation Army.
Formerly based in Dubai, Tse Tse Fly has been curating events that showcase experimental music from across the Middle East, Africa and the Indian Subcontinent. Operating since 2015, the organisation had found it increasingly difficult to continue working in the UAE and relocated to the UK in the summer of this year. The evening will support five charities and organisations that focus on human rights and censorship issues: FORWARD UK, Labour Behind the Label, Amnesty International, Index On Censorship and the International Labour Organisation.
