This summer, The Nest Collective invites you to discover extraordinary music around the campfire.
Every week from May to September, we gather in beautiful green spaces under city skylines and listen to amazing music by artists from all over the world.
We come together in the simple way that people have done for thousands of years, around the fire with food, drink, music and each other. The performances are unamplified, allowing you to get up close and personal and hear the artists’ music in a very intimate way.

Tangram is an artist collective that creates and curates new Chinese music. As accomplished musicians from various backgrounds, Reylon Yount (yangqin), Beibei Wang (percussion), Daniel Shao (flute), and Alex Ho (composition) share a common desire to explore conceptions of the Chinese diaspora in nuanced ways. Their work begins with reflections on personal experiences and extends to broader considerations of the complexities of cross-cultural life.
The Sages (竹林七贤) is a new world music fusion band project based in London that draws inspirations from different music elements throughout time and history. With the main focus on traditional East Asian music, the band consists of young students currently studying at SOAS, University of London. As a diverse cosmopolitan generation growing up under an age of globalization and other social changes, the band aims to explore the concepts between “East” and “West”, cultural identity and musical “genres” through both original composition and adaption of traditional folk music. “The Sages 竹林七贤” is a reference to a group of 7 literati, artists and scholars in ancient China who chose to escape mundane and hypocritical secular life and status to live in the remote natural countryside with the companionship of music, poetry, art (and wine) in search of a higher spiritual fulfilment.
