While covering the Larmer Tree Festival, one of the most amazing acts we saw was The Imagined Village. They’re a folk act, drawing inspiration from all over the world to highlight multiculturalism and they depict the rich tapestry of life in modern Britain. They have been highly praised by many, and have worked with prestigious names such as Billy Bragg and Paul Weller. Here they are with a fantastic example of their music, appearing on Jools Holland. Their music blends cultures from all around the world, and it works at an incredibly impressive level.
After seeing them perform we met up for an interview, in which they discuss their past, their aims, and their hopes for the future, all sprinkled with a sense of optimism and humour. So here they are, The Imagined Village having a lovely chat with us.
