J-Night presents:
The African All Stars
directed by Lucky Ranku


Featuring Lucky Ranku (guitar), Mervyn Africa (piano), Claude Deppa (trumpet), Fayaz Virji (trombone), Tony Kofi (baritone sax), Bukky Leo (tenor sax), Ntshuks Bonga (alto sax), Sami el Salahi (bass), Frank Tontoh (drums), Nana Tsiboe (percussion)

Regarded as Africa's greatest guitarist, South African Lucky Ranku returns to the UK with his most ambitious project to date. Lucky creates a spiritual journey back to the heart of the townships, by assembling a line-up of 10 instrumentalists from all corners of Africa to produce a sound that sizzles like the African sun. Many of the musicians have visited Hull before leading their own bands and we are delighted to welcome them back with this massive African supergroup for one of the most important - and funkiest - evening of the year.

ARKH presents:
'Fusion'
A literary and musical celebration

A number of highly talented people, amongst them poets, writers, sculptors and musicians have become residents of Hull, seeking refuge in the UK.
'Fusion' is an opportunity to see genuine collaborations between cultures, with a musical fusion of voices and instruments combining to produce a unity of sound, thought and song. All are welcome to an evening of poetry, music and the spoken word, reflecting the diversity of our city.

The theme of humanitarian tolerance will inevitably, on this special Day of Remembrance, run through the evening, with one minute's silence for all who have died and suffered in the upholding of the humanitarian principles of justice and freedom.

ARKH (Asylum Seekers & Refugees of Kingston upon Hull) endeavours to build a dialogue for tolerance.
