You might think a 9-piece band is overwhelming by definition. So try to imagine a 9-piece band playing Ghanaian highlife, Nigerian afrobeat, West African rhythms and mixing them all with a UK multicultural urban approach.
It goes without saying that Friday’s K.O.G. & the Zongo Brigade show at Jazz Café will be a blast. The Sheffield-based band will storm the Camden venue with their funky attitude and irresistible sound; you simply won’t be able to stay put.
You’ll have plenty of their afro-fusion mix, thanks to what has been announced as an “exclusive set” along with two jazzy guest acts on the decks. Wu-Lu and First Word Records’ DJ Gilla will set the mood and keep the groove going throughout the night, adding their souls and sounds to what will be an unmissable occasion.
