"Pure beauty through simplicity" Robert Plant

A first for the Kalamazoo...

Robin and Bina work together so well because they create a perfect balance of voices drawing on an exotic mix of Celtic Indian and Old Timey roots.

Incredible String Band legend Robin returns to the Klub - and this time he's bringing his wife Bina. It is a combination that has had critics reaching for the superlatives...."enchanting"..."magical". .."spellbinding."

Robin plays the Celtic harp, Bina the bowed psaltery (that's a kind of zither) and together they achieve what Robert Plant described as "pure beauty through simplicity." The duo draw on an "exotic mix" (as Robin calls it) - Celtic, Indian and old timey roots. A unique form of musical creativity.

Indian influence comes from East African-born British Asian Bina, a fine performer in her own right and an accomplished singer and multi-instrumentalist. Their music is original, traditional, visionary and spiritual - endorsed by no lesser figure than former Archbishop of Canterbury Dr Rowan Williams himself. His verdict: "superb."

About The Kalamazoo Klub

The Kalamazoo Klub was started thirteen years ago by two local musicians, Paul Alcantara and Guy Simpson. They had been playing in folk and acoustic clubs in London and the South East for years and decided that North London needed a music venue that would bring top quality, live acoustic artists to the area from all genres of music.

The Kalamazoo Klub has, in the years since, attracted some of the most famous names in acoustic music, from Bert Jansch who was the first artist to appear, Martin Carthy, Robin Williamson and John Kirkpatrick through to more diverse artists from the worlds of folk, celtic music, Blues, flamenco, Country and even Chinese classical music.
