About Arifa’s Reefers
Renowned jazz band Arifa’s Reefers are bringing their unique old-time jazz to Ninety One Living Room for a swinging evening!
Arifa’s Reefers are a jazz band that plays swing and blues from the 1920s and 30s. The band is led by singer Arifa Hafiz, a Bangladeshi British who miraculously manages to channel the voices of great blues and jazz singers, such as Billie Holiday, Bessie Smith, Ma Rainey and Merline Johnson, whilst still sounding truly herself. She has an honest and giving spirit and she’ll be accompanied by some of London’s great specialists.
There ill be live old jazz, ragtime, blues and swing and swing dance lessons every Wednesday from Arifa’s Reefers from 7:15-11pm. Come and dance or hang out and listen at the bar, to old music being played by this amazing London band.
