Hennessy Lates at Somerset House
Two free, intimate gigs which see Hennessy trace its musical roots from jazz to grime.
Night one, on Thursday 15th August, is curated and hosted by Lord of the Mics, Jammer. Performances include jungle legend General Levy, garage soundsystem Heartless Crew and Jammer himself as MC.
The second night on Friday 16th August turns to the next generation, as the 8-piece jazz and afrobeat band Kokoroko perform live, alongside a special performance from multi-instrumentalist and NTS resident Cktrl, with DJ sets alongside from Amz and Tej Adeleye.
Hennessy Lates will bring to life the Hennessy: For the Culture installation - a part of Somerset House’s Get Up, Stand Up Now exhibition - which delves deep into the story of black British music and explores how a 250-year old cognac brand has become synonymous with hip-hop and grime.
