Nando’s opens London recording studio, and you can apply to use it for free

Chicken restaurant Nando’s has opened a record studio in Central London.

Audio Media International reports that the new recording space is situated at its renovated Frith Street restaurant and is decked out with professional equipment for budding producers, artists and DJs such as a Neumann U87 mic.

“All the best ideas start over PERi-PERi (or so we heard). That’s why we’ve brought together two of our favourite things – chicken and tunes – for our first ever restaurant recording studio,” says a statement on the Nando’s website.

“Nestled downstairs in our recently renovated Soho restaurant, the space has been designed for emerging talent to fuel their creativity and collaborate in familiar, relaxing surroundings.”

The really great thing about this interesting announcement is that musicians can apply to use the space for free. Find out if you qualify for a free session and apply here.

It turns out that Nando’s has a history of championing music, with 2018 marking the fourth year of the Nando’s Music Exchange – a programme designed to inspire the exchange of global music influences through mentoring, workshops and events.
