Watch Closer Online

Tomorrow evening (Wednesday 29 April) we return to Village Underground with City of London Sinfonia for CLOSER: Émigré – Ljova

If you can’t join us in East London, you can tune in here from 7.15pm and enjoy a live stream of the event direct from Village Underground.

Tonight’s CLOSER is a modern-day tale of immigration from Russia to the USA, Ljova’s musician parents moved from Moscow to New York as communism fell in 1990. The result is Ljova’s unique musical voice that combines classical music with his own blend of Russian folk music, jazz, Balkan Gypsy and Klezmer. Performing with City of London Sinfonia on viola and violin, this excitingCLOSER concert sees Ljova bring his haunting and exciting music to East London.

The live stream will also be available online for seven days following the performance.
