Ukrainian-born pop duo Anna and Sonia Kuprienko have teamed up with the founder of Secret Cinema, Fabien Riggall, to organise a music and art fundraiser night for Ukraine.
The fundraiser named “The Night for Ukraine” will take place at Roundhouse in north London next week, according to PA.
The event will raise money for the Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC) appeal to support humanitarian and emergency response work in Ukraine and neighbouring countries.
The Bloom Twins are helping to curate the event and will perform on the evening. The show will also feature live music from international artists, spoken word poetry, films and DJ sets.
“We are Ukrainian and it’s humbling to see the support our country is getting around the world. We are really looking forward to being a part of this project, and not just as a one-off performance but as creative collaborators,” The Bloom Twins told PA News.
DEC represents 15 charities, including British Red Cross, Oxfam UK, Save the Children UK, that are all working on the ground in Ukraine and at the country‘s borders to assist those fleeing the conflict.
Riggall said: “We are excited to be collaborating with the Bloom Twins and honoured to be partnering with Sunflower Relief, an inspiring organisation to help Ukrainians at this time. We hope that this event will fuel artists and venues to create their own nights for Ukraine to support DEC in any way they can during this crisis.”
Tickets for the Roundhouse event on March 9 are on sale now.
