GemArts new season launches with the very welcome return of The Ska Vengers, a thoroughly unique 8 piece band based in New Delhi, who blend ‘ska’ rhythms with elements of dub, punk, jazz and rap to come up with a form of music that is refreshingly different, energetic and highly danceable. Not to be missed!

Plus support from local favourites Crossings band.

Presented with Jumpin Hot Club and Ja Live.

Part of Freedom City 2017 – a city-wide programme marking the 50th anniversary of Dr Martin Luther King Jr. receiving an honorary degree from Newcastle University. For more information, visit www.freedomcity2017.com

Watch The Ska Vengers perform 0011 (Jasoos Swing) for Sofar London in September 2016.



‘Energetic, almost eccentric and dramatic music’ – Indian Express

‘A true representation of the forward thinking artists that are bringing the spotlight over to the Indian music scene. Mesmerising and moreish, it is impossible not to find your limbs loosening while your body wills you to skank to the music’ – Wild City

A celebration of creative dissent wherein The Ska Vengers regaled the audience with a dose of quirky political reggae & rap’ – The Hindu
