         MERIAN CONCERT IN LONDON   With a virtuoso vocal that flows between the Andean, Creole and Latin American folk traditions, Peruvian transfeminist singer Merian (them/they) gives an exciting and inclusive new face to Latin root music.  Born into a family rooted in Lima and Ayacucho, a region in the Peruvian Sierra filled with traditional music, they grew up singing, playing and listening to Andino rhythms, Creole music and Latin American folk songs.   Their 2016 debut album Raíz/Es – recorded live in the rehearsal room of the Symphonic Orchestra of the National Grand Theatre in Lima – compiles stunning Peruvian and Latin American folk songs in an acoustic format of guitar, double bass, Peruvian cajón and voice.  We are excited to present Merian’s first concert in London, an absolute treat for roots and world music fans, in a very intimate night at the Common House.   Doors Open: 19:00 Concert: 20:00  Tickets between 5 to 8 pound * If you have less £ it's OK no one will be turned away :)  Also if you can, please bring any food you will like to share with everybody as it'll be a cosy evening of beautiful Peruvian folklore music ♥    WHEN: Saturday 17th November 2018 at 8.00 pm  WHERE: Common House (5E Pundersons Gardens, London E2 9QG)
