Preview: Pussyfoot Records and Friends @ Lion and Lamb (London; Thursday 16th May 2019)

pussyfoot kongo

Since 1993, when it was launched by trip-hop pioneer Howie B and Nick Young, Pussyfoot Records has constantly brought some eclecticism in the UK music scene, dedicating its work and catalogue to genre-defying sounds and talented musicians.

An example that perfectly embodies the label’s credo is its latest release, 360° by Kongo Dia Ntotila, which will be celebrated at Hoxton’s Lion and Lamb.

The Afro-jazz (or Afro-joy as the musicians love to call their style) band indeed present a wide-ranging and far-reaching sound that links together Central and West African traditions and rhythms with urban and London-inspired jazzy imagery.

On Thursday 16th, join Kongo Dia Ntotila and Pussyfoot Records fellows Houseplants and Ian Simmonds for an evening well assorted in notes and influences, mirroring the many-sided character of the label.
