Balabam! Just like that South Tottenham has gained a fab new music venue / community pub / hangout.
Both Stamford Hill and South Tottenham have an important and fascinating musical history (on which, more another time). So it is doubly fantastic for our area to play host to a venue that clearly puts the love of music so full-square at the centre of what it does. Not least after London has lost so many brilliant venues in recent years to “development”.
Last weekend saw Balabam open, described by one Gladesmore resident as “absolutly brilliant!”. The line up looks to be forming day-by-day but it seems fair to expect more quality live music from around the world. This weekend alone features a pirate takeover, Mediterranean funk from Al-Maranca )“multi-instrumentalist, singer, composer, producer, video artist, cultural activist”), and the sounds of West Africa from Koroleko – Moussa Dembele.
We’re expecting great things from this place… Keep an eye on Balabam’s FaceBook for the latest news.
