Passing Clouds - Dalston

This rather worthy outfit puts on a mixed bag of events every week, from “conscious film screenings” (rather than unconscious ones?), to spoken word and hip hop showcases.

Momo’s central - London

This famous North African restaurant (there are also branches in Paris, the UAE and Beirut) puts together a regular rota of Afro-infused live music and DJ sets, with it all going off in the eatery’s basement bar, Kemia. The last few weeks have seen shows from Brazilian diva Tulipa Ruiz and an Africa Shock party. If this sort of stuff is your bag then keep an eye on the website, as acts are announced frequently for the upcoming months. 

£10+, Africa Shock is on 8pm til late

King’s Place - King’s Cross

With theatrical productions, literature events and musical performances, such as the forthcoming King’s Place festival, this leftfield leaning arts and culture hub comes up trumps. Top nights not to miss include Finnish experimental band Oddarrang (Sept 13), and the London Klezmer Quartet who celebrate the soulful music of pre-war Jewish Central Europe. Diverse.

Royal Albert Hall - Kensington

This stunning 19th-century building (above) is most often associated with heritage rock acts like Eric Clapton, classical performances and the Proms. It also, though, hosts regular world music shows, from African beats to atmospheric jazz performances and European traditional folk music recitals, even. Nights not to miss over the summer are the Gospel Prom (July 16) and Caroline Loftus and F.R.E.D whose Ignite Brunch salutes 1950s Havanan sounds (Jul 21, 12pm). 

£15+, Dates and times vary
