The Baldwin gallery, home of founder Dennison and exhibition and events space. The Baldwin creates dialogue between cultures, nature and art.
Blessed by life, by beauty, by the aromas and tastes of the kitchen, we came together to celebrate HER infinity in us. Inspired by Emilia Martensson most recent album ‘Loredana’, we crossed worlds and connected the motherly ties from four cultures.
Who is your Mama? welcomed Emilia Martensson’s vocal students for a workshop during the day at The Baldwin . The programme included a communal meal provided by Chef Mostafa Hussien (Pear Tree Cafe, Amba Hotel Charing Cross). The menu had falafel, homemade chips, aubergine, salad, homemade bread and tahini sauce.
For the evening supper club, Emilia was accompanied by Luca Boscagin (guitar) and Adriano Adewale (percussion). The set list was based on her album and guests were surprised with an improvising performance by dancer Carolina Adewale.
The menu created by Chef Mostafa Hussien brings back his childhood memories, when he would recognise his mum’s cooking by the distinguished smell that would fill the entire building where the family flat was. The evening started with this favourite, Molokhya.
