On the 5th of November, Tomlinscote students enjoyed a trip to London to watch Irie Révoltés live at a club! The band from Heidelberg sing in French and German about social injustice and politics - and they rock! The trip was organised by the Goethe Institute as part of their joint venture with the Institut Francais.Vielen Dank & merci for making it possible!
Here's what Neemah Wright (year 12) has to say about the night:
"Irie Révoltés are a band that combines Reggae, Ska, Hip Hop, Rock and Pop with punchy bass lines, powerful drums and catchy lyrics.
The 9 piece band uses conventional 'rock' instruments as well as synths and brass instruments to create an amazing 'live' sound as well as delivering a unique and unheard aspect of sound to the genre. The band gets the audience involved and carry a great energy with them, which also helps the audience to dance and 'mosh-pit' to their songs.
Being able to watch them play live was an amazing experience especially as the trip was already paid for by the Goethe institute. If you ever have the chance to see them, take it!"
Watch a video in French: It's called "Allez"
Here's another one mainly in German: "Zeit ist Geld"
