Take a musical tour of work from Scotland to Australia, Denmark to India with this year's Islington Festival of Music + Art. Themed on 'From the Homeland - Celebrating Roots', the programme explores what it means and how it is celebrated, looking through composers' relationships with their origins and how they take inspiration from them.

The Festival has a little 'Czech sandwich', starting and finishing with two programmes entirely of Czech music, celebrating the 200th anniversary of the birth of Smetana, opening the festival with his 'From the Homeland'.

The festival includes regular contributing artists such as Kati Debretzeni, Fran Hills, Miguel Ángel Villeda Cerón and Sol Grimshaw. There will be some new faces too, such as Su-a Lee, Sky Ingram, Peter Rose, Jacqueline Shave and Kuljit Bhamra.

But that's not all, there's a chance to try a contemporary dance class to live music, and yoga to live harp and cello music.

There's also a Walking Concert through the Angel. starting at the Quentin Blake Centre for Illustration and finishing at Angel Central shopping centre. ​ Tickets are now on sale and organisers have some great deals, free tickets for young people and early bird discounts until May. ​
