A one-off unique music experience blending uplifting cultural music of prominent communities of Southwark. This LIVE performance will feature:

PAUL LEE

Having sung the now infamous lead to ‘Stand By Me’ at the Royal wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, Paul Lee is renowned for his smooth yet strong vocals. Paul was one of a few soloists to sing with The Kingdom Choir in front of a global audience of over two billion people and his voice has since become the backdrop for broadcasters all over the world. His rendition has been described as moving, emotional and beautifully controlled.

The Silk and Bamboo (string and wind) group is part of the UK Chinese Music Ensemble – an internationally recognized Chinese instrumental group based in London. Led by renowned pipa (4-stringed lute) player Cheng Yu, with the unique sound of the erhu (2-stringed fiddle), guzheng (21-stringed zither) and dizi/xiao (bamboo flutes), expertly played by virtuosi musicians.
