Little Rumba are captivating. They write all their own music and over the years this has developed an instantly recognisable house style, which owes debts to Eastern Europe and South America as well as jazz and blues. However, if you close your eyes when you listen you can easily imagine yourself in a Parisian bar.

 All proceeds from the evening will go to support the education and health projects in the remote, mountainous NE corner of Nepal, run and financed by the Himalayan Trust UK (Reg. Charity No. 1000153)

Ranulph has led numerous expeditions and was the first person ever to summit Everest and cross both polar ice caps in the same expedition.
