Brickwork Lizards

Venue: Main Stage


Brickwork Lizards are a cinematic Arabic jazz ensemble based in Oxford. Their unique combination of pre-war gin-joint jazz and traditional Middle Eastern music has been championed on BBC6 Music by Don Letts and Tom Robinson.  

The Lizards' 2018 album Haneen was described as “a joyful bound across time, soaking up lines, melodies, riffs and the atmosphere of a shellac scratchy tea dance one minute, a lavishly decorated, carpeted seraglio the next.”
