MWALIMU EXPRESS: Destination – Mogadishu, Somalia.
Brought to you by The Shrine’s legendary Max Reinhardt and Rita Ray.

Mwalimu Express

London’s only Pan African adventure chugs in with a dazzling experience of Africa and the Diaspora.

All aboard the Mwalimu Express as it pulls into African cities and brings you awesome music from around the continent.

First stop at Rich Mix on the 21 October is Mogadishu, Somalia, birth place of Mo Farah, Rageh Omar, Iman, and K’Naan.

Balafon, mbira, talking drum, molo, oud and kora are just some of the instruments to be featured live by the amazing musicians we meet at each destination, plus Max and Rita on the decks spinning the tunes.

Come join in the stupendous storytelling sessions, Screen Station films and far out arts workshops.

Unwind to super sounds against a backdrop of fab decor, market stalls and mouth watering food from Africa.
