Laura Cahen: #nightofideas at the IFRU London
A French music event worth getting in your diary if you live in London is an appearance by Laura Cahen at the Institut français du Royaume-Uni at the end of January.
Laura Cahen's album Nord was released last year, and it confirms her as a distinctive artist, with what Les Inrocks describes as a "a beautiful promise full of melancholic beauty."
Her performance in the historic reading room of the IFRU in London will be followed by a question and answer session.
Cahen is just one of the guests at the event that features international guests from a wide variety of fields, from film maker Ken Loach to astronauts Tim Peak and Thomas Pesquet, amid a large bill of writers, philosophers, scientists and politicians.
The Night of Ideas event takes place on January 25 and is free, but advance booking his required. There's more information here.
