LONDON, August 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
Raw Material, the music and media charity, hosted an evening of eclectic music to mark the end of their Raw Sounds Mental Health Project. The Raw Sounds Live event was staged at the Raw Material centre in Robsart Street, Brixton on Thursday 1st August and featured a diverse programme, incorporating doo-wop, rock, folk, house, hip-hop and spoken word performances.
The event was a culmination of 10 weeks of music activities, including live band performances, studio recording sessions, DJing, plus film-making and photography linked to the music work. Raw Material's in-house band - FLOetic Lara, Chavez, Tagz and Sublusive - worked with all the musicians involved to produce the evening's fantastic multimedia line-up.
