Shkembe Soup is a troupe of musicians and dancers who perform a concoction of delicious live music and swirling dance. We bring you music and dance from around the world. Let your ears be delighted by songs from Egypt, Hungary and East London and your eyes feast on swirling skirts and golden wings. Join in clapping, singing along and dancing a kolo with us as we gallop through time and space from Medieval Morrocco to 1940s London via the deserts of Bohemia….. We sing, dance and play guitar, djembe drums, violin, mandolin, flute and more.
We love performing at festivals, parties, pubs, clubs and fund-raising events. We regularly perform in East End venues and the locality including the Royal Sovereign, in Clapton, Biddle Brothers, Chatsworth Road and in Victoria Park.
