Live at The Wick Launch, Hackney

MSF presents Prague electro-pop act Aiko, making her London debut at the launch party for The Wick, the new cultural publication and social community based in London’s vibrant Hackney Wick arts quarter.

The event was filmed before a socially distanced audience at Studio 9294 and took place on the last night before London went into lockdown. Despite the pandemic, Czech singer Aiko has been attracting radio play in the UK and all over Europe over the last year. Born in Moscow and raised in Prague, she’s made festival, radio and TV appearances across Europe and recently moved to London. She made her UK debuts with Noise of Art partners MSF and Woodbridge Festival of Art and Music during Lockdown 2020.

The launch party also featured DJ sets from regular Noise of Art DJ sparring partners Justin Robertson and Ben Osborne.

We are grateful to Arts Council England and Czech Republic’s Ministry of Culture for making this event possible.

MSF is a pan European grass roots music collaboration set up by London’s Noise of Art and The Social and Prague’s Move Association and Cross Club.

Watch the premier at 18:30 (GMT) 19:30 (CET) on Friday 22 January, 2021
