Live music from Jazz New Blood
Live music by Rosie Frater-Taylor (guitar and vocals) and Roella Oloro (piano) from Jazz New Blood.
This month on East Cast we take a journey into sound with the School of Noise, we talk to Gabriella Apichella about the female focused film festival Underwired, Rita Maya and Jose Cardosa from Portuguese Conspiracy about the Portuguese film event they are organising, we meet Jen Wong from Guerilla Science and Neil Samson from Carwash who are joining forces for a scientific experiment and singer songwriter Lail Arad joins us in the studio for a live session from her next album ‘Onion’ due for release next year. Presented and produced by Nia Charpentier, Danielle Manning and Pear Wise. Guest feature production by Julia Lorke.
This show explores the different ways people use space in East London. We talk to two sets of Portuguese entrepreneurs bringing tastes, sights and sounds from the country, how a memorial has been created in Bethnal Green where many East Londoners died in a tragic accident during World Word II and how Eat Work Art are making derelict spaces into veritable community hubs for business and more.
Presented and produced by Nia Chapentier, Ana Xavier and Pearl Wise.
Ana Xavier roamed the streets of east London to talk to the people responsible for showcasing contemporary Portuguese culture to the masses. They are part of the new wave of immigrants that are uniting the roots of portuguese products and food to the latest cultural movements in music, design and illustration.
If you got curious about the projects, head to the Portuguese Conspiracy where you can try delicious food made by Rita and Jose and talk to Olga and Dina to find out how the “magic fruit bowl” works at The Portuguese Love Affair.
Thurs, 27th November
Head to St Mattias’ church for a sonic experience featuring two of the most extraordinary and creative Portuguese musicians in solo guitar music.

The live performances will be accompanied by a range of Portuguese wines and nibbles (Petiscos) for a fuller cultural experience.
