David Maric

A diverse and eclectic cellist, Gabriella Swallow has emerged as one of the leading performers on the contemporary music and jazz scene. She is a member of singer/songwriter Judith Owen's band and in the Gwilym Simcock Quintet. On the 12th July she celebrated some of her most exciting musical collaborations in an evening of live music, covering all the genres she loves to play, with her very special 'urban family of musicians'. All of the proceeds of this event supported the Calais Jungle Crisis
The evening at The Forge, Camden directly benefitted the Phone Credit For Refugees And Displaced People charity. This group actively saves lives on a daily basis, by allowing individuals to request their top-up on their page, and they are able to have the all important life-line.... CONTACT with their families and each other.

Bulgarian Tunes (Maric/Singh/Glowacki/Segundo/Swallow)

Hay stack, back cracked as you are bridged over the straw. Head, blood rushing and toes to the sky. The festival beats around you as evening moves into night, the heat of the golden hay still warming from below. The burn of the earth vibrates in your body, a jumping bean. Revellers dance in flickering circles and you lie high above them in the dark. I am king of the world, king of the summer.
