Multi-instrumentalist Afla Sackey and his world class band Afla Sackey & Afrik Bawantu
Afrik Bawantu is an orchestra producing African rhythm-driven, dance inducing fusion with traditional roots, formed by Ghanaian vocalist and djembe drummer Afla Sackey.
Afrik Bawantu’s original compositions blend high-life from West African percussion and more funk, rock genres, enhancing the cross-cultural collaboration. The uplifting rhythm section in harmony with roaring brass accompanied by high-powered bass lines creates a powerful Afro-Funk sound, with an energy that drives audiences to the dance floors.
Urban Equatorial Funk
First class exponents of the soukous style of music, Kasai Masai aren’t known for doing things by halves. Based in London, and led by Voodoo King, Nickens Nkoso, Kasai Masai mix the traditional sound of the equatorial African village with a distinctive urban edge. The band’s fast-paced style of soukous and rumba meld with Congolese folkloric traditions to create an infectious form of dance music. From the plains to the soaring heights, theirs is a sound that will transport you to a land where music is more than just entertainment, they will take you to a place where it is a way of life.
