Musical virtuoso Jyotsna Srikanth is Europe’s foremost Indian violinist. Her music illuminates Carnatic musical tradition in kaleidoscope colour, with a sound that’s deeply rooted in south Indian classical music alongside western classical music. Described as “extraordinary and versatile” by The Guardian, the sought-after violinist and composer is currently in demand as a solo musician, alongside working on innovative collaborative musical projects with artists as diverse as the Bollywood Brass Band to Swedish folk musicians.
With support from new vocal trio Iceni who harmonise on songs from the past and present, from British and Bulgarian folk to Americana and twists on modern popular songs.
The event is brought to you by the Music Halls Project which brings quality live music into the heart of the community.
Margaret Wilks, writing about shops on Leytonstone High Road, said:
â€œBearmans used to have a fantastic Father Christmas. But you had to be middle class to shop in there. They had a lovely tea place downstairs with all the cake stands, and they brought out your tray with your little cups and saucers. The co-op took it over in the late 60’s. It was kept quiet for six months, my mother in law worked there. They kept it quiet because they had so many account holders there, as soon as that came out everybody cancelled. People from Wanstead and Woodford did not deal with the Co-op! It was called Pioneer, for a short while, so that it didn’t sound like Co-op. It closed within six months. People just didn’t go in there.â€
Ironic now that any lingering snob value would, out of Wanstead’s two supermarkets, work in the Co-op’s favour. (Well-spotted, Grouchotendency)
[picappgallerysingle id=”8382660″]The massive 120m Anish Kapoor sculpture to be built at the Olympic Park is going to cause disruption to the reception of Freeview TV signal to parts of Snaresbrook and South Woodford, Wansteadium can reveal.
The disruption is not expected to be massive – but could cause “ghosting” – and it doesn’t seem there is much that can be done to correct it, other than affected residents upgrading aeriels or switching to cable or satellite TV. There is no plan at the moment to fund those upgrades – they will have to be paid for by affected households.
[the proposed sculpture] is likely to have a slight adverse impact on terrestrial TV services, due to shadowing of terrestrial TV signals caused by signal shadowing to Crystal Palace and Croydon transmitters, in a number of households to the north east of the development.Â The affected locations may be able to have terrestrial television services restored by using one of the following methods as appropriate: installing a higher gain antenna or re-locating the existing antenna or re-pointing the existing antenna to another transmitter where possible or, if any of these solutions are unable to restore service, by installing satellite or cable TV services;
