RECENT EVENTS - ignite with the Nour Festival - Maya Youssef

Maya Youssef | ignite | Royal Albert Hall

Syrian kanun player Maya Youssef comes to the Royal Albert Hall as part of the Nour Festival.

Maya has given vibrant performances all over the world and attracted much media attention when she moved to Dubai in 2007, and was last year recognised as an 'Exeptional Talent' by the Arts Council of England.

The Nour Festival is the Royal Borough of Kensington & Chelsea's festival of contemporary Middle Eastern arts and culture and comes to the Hall for both this free ignite concert and a performance by Natacha Atlas and her band in the Elgar Room on 12 October.


Our free ignite series takes place in the relaxed atmosphere of the Royal Albert Hall's Café Consort and features performances from talented artists, from gypsy jazz to Celtic folk. Keep an eye out for exclusive ignite lunch offers available every Friday. The full Café Consort menu is also available - click here to see the sample menu.
