Free photography exhibition at the Pompidou
From 22 February to 22 May 2017
Photographer Josef Koudelka originally from Moravia, currently lives in Paris pursuing his passion for photography. Having been introduced to the medium by a friend of his fathers at a young age, Josef now travels the world, never staying longer than 3 months in the same place, taking pictures of his adventures. In this Exhibition we see seventy five of his photographs making up the ‘Exils’ series. This series of photographs taken in the 1970’s and 1980’s follow the few months leading up to the invasion of Prague. Koudelka powerfully portrays the complex subjects of irruption, protest and repression. Make sure to head down to this exhibition this April to experience his brilliance for yourself.

Concert: Kelp Giant + Morgan at the Zorba
Saturday 29th April
Kelp Giant, an eclectic trio from California experiments with a range of musical genres. Influenced by the sounds of the Balkans, Flamenco and Indian music this trio is the epitome of jazz with a twist. Followed by Parisian duo Morgan who take us on an interesting journey, their lyrics that of a fable or a story perfectly complimented by a jazzy sound. If you feel for a night of experimental jazz that embraces the modernisation of this genre whilst holding on to its traditionalism, make sure to head down to the Zorba in Belleville.
