Refugee Rhythms is on tonight at the SU, where students and refugees can dance together

Bump & Grind and Blue Honey DJs are playing together for the first time ever

Student charity Cardiff STAR (Student Action for Refugees) are putting on their annual Refugees Rhythms night at Cardiff Students’ Union tonight, 23rd February.

Speaking to The Tab, Steven Curry, a third year History student and one of the organisers said: “Tired of sticky floors, spilled drinks and angry bouncers ? Of course you are.”

“If you want a night out with a difference, get down to Refugee Rhythms later for what is going to possibly be the best decision of your life. World class DJs? We can supply that, with both Blue Honey and Bump and Grind playing.”

“Attached to your ticket price we’re also throwing in the feeling of doing something good for the Cardiff community, you’ll be supporting our volunteering projects and making friends with a host of different people along the way.”

Last year at Refugee Rhythms

Providing a place where students and refugees alike can come together to party and break down divisions, Refugee Rhythms is now in its second year and provides free entry to refugees and asylum seekers.

To be expected from an event celebrating diversity, music on the night will range from afrobeat, jazz, and hip hop to funk, disco, and soul.

Winning the ‘Best Event’ award from the Students’ Union last year for a sell-out night, this time around will see bands Helele Sounds of Harlowe and local favourites Blue Honey and Bump & Grind play on a bill alongside Middle Eastern singing and drumming act The Alsaher Brothers.

Tickets are £5 and can be bought on the door or online.
