The talented and creative DJ, singer and designer Alex Rita hosts the latest edition of Art of Sound in the Academicans’ Room.

When not making her own clothes or drawing, Alex Rita spends her time immersed in another passion; patching together percussive grooves and organic sounds aimed at the soul and feet.

Alex regularly hosts a bi-weekly NTS Radio session and listeners can be blessed with anything from spiritual jazz, poetry, field recordings and soul, to broken beat, Caribbean vibes and warm house grooves. She also hosts an open discussion and live music series, Speaking In Sound, at Brilliant Corners.

Alex is also one half of soul-pop duo Okapii, who are releasing their debut album on Fresh Selects later this year. She is a crucial member and resident at Touching Bass, the grassroots South London-based soulful party movement.

This event is open to members of the Academicians’ Room, Patrons and Friends of the Royal Academy and booking is required. A limited number of tickets are available to the general public, so be quick to book if you don’t want to miss out!
