Ninety One Living Room draws on a cross-section of the best of the London music scene and is the brainchild of Director Juliet Kennedy. Talking about the venue she said: “The scene at Ninety One has come about organically through the artist communities that I’ve invited into the space. The artists bring the vibe, and people show up for that. When you’ve got Dele Sosimi playing live on a Friday night and a famous trumpet player happens to rock up at midnight and gets up on stage to play with him, you know you’re involved in something special. Offering these artists the stage is the first thing I wanted to do, and selling their records, offering them that little bit more, was the obvious next step. But this is just the beginning… There’s a real community here, it’s a time and a place and there’s so much more to come from it… Watch this space!”
