Kilele brings together our Artistic Development and Learning and Participation programmes by placing professional musicians and artists in a school setting to develop a performance piece with the students.

The Drake Music team comprises of our Associate Musician Gary Day, trainee Associate Musician Tom Newnham, Tabla player Yousuf Ali Khan and Rez Kabir, a professional actor, storyteller and producer.

The three schools and regions involved in this project are George Green (Isle of Dogs), Morpeth (Bethnal Green) and Swanlea School (Whitechapel).

Kilele Tower Hamlets musical inclusion project

The aim of this project is to engage with the students and break down barriers so that young people can play music, create their own performances to show the public and tell the story of their neighbourhood.

Join us at Rich Mix on 15th July to celebrate this fantastic project and to hear the music and stories created by the students.
