World Heart Beat will be providing three live music performances at this year’s Happy Streets Festival for the whole community, on Saturday 10th July.
If you live, work or go to school in the Nine Elms and East Battersea area, don’t miss this event which features live music, entertainment, pizza making and craft activities!
The summer festival started in 2019 as a local celebration of the nearby Happy Street redesign of Thessaly Road bridge. This year, Happy Streets is also part of Wandsworth Arts Fringe (WAF).
The festival is mainly outdoors and will adhere to Covid-secure Government guidance.
Watch out for our young musicians at the following times at St. Georges Primary School, Corunna Road, SW8 4JS
Brazilian band, led by Ava Joseph (12:00 – 12.45pm)
As a young musician, Ava Joseph’s musical prowess took off when World Heart Beat invited Brazilian musicians for a 3-month residency. This early learning helped ignite, shape and solidify a deep connection and love for Brazilian music and all its traditions. She’s a gifted performer and songwriter who has performed in the most prestigious venues across the country and abroad. She also attends the Julian Joseph Jazz Academy and is a bandleader and project Impressario. Her most recent performance called Operation Forest saw her directing her own choir and band.
Wavey Collective, led by Jaidon Regis (1:30 – 2:15pm)
Led by drummer Jaidon Regis, Wavey Collective is a group of young, motivated musicians who specialise in multi-genre live music mixing and representing the frontiers of London youth culture.
All of the members of the collective have a passion for live music and the industry that facilitates the making of it.
Jaidon Regis says “Through these difficult times, together we can regenerate and share the love and energy of live music.”
World Heart Beat Gig Band (4:00 – 4:45pm)
