Jamiroquai percussionist and bandleader Sola Akingbola will be taking his live group Critical Mass to Theatre Royal Stratford East, promising a heady collision of synths and gnarled guitars to match the equally tumultuous times in which we live. Conceived by Akingbola as a way to make something distinctive and new from a collection of diverse styles and backgrounds - the band boasts a Cuban drummer - Critical Mass's zeitgeist-y futuristic funk is certainly worth experiencing.

After last year's series at Battersea Arts Centre, GOAT Music's Borderless takes its vibrant live music event from south London to east, assembling another batch of excellent artists and emerging talent to take to the stage. Nothing could be more fitting for this part of town, as Stratford steadily establishes its own cultural foothold in London, an inviting, artistic hub for all to enjoy.
On the collaboration with Goat Music, Theatre Royal Stratford East's Artistic Director Kerry Michael commented "Borderless promises to be a great festival of quality music from some amazing talent. We're really excited that we've managed to work together to fill our theatre with an impressive line up."
