Preview: ROOTS – An Afro-Reggae Experience with Biram Seck, Bongo Kanny & Empress Imani @ Fox & Firkin (London, 30th April 2016)


Focus Organisation Africa are no strangers to hosting some of the finest names within the afro roots London scene. Having recently invited soukous legend Kanda Bongo Man to grace London’s Rich Mix, as well as Diabel Cissokho, Focus welcome Reggae Roots and African Music to Lewisham’s Fox and Firkin.

Sengalese songwriter, Biram Seck revisits the U.K. with his band, following a stint on British shores a few summers ago including an acclaimed 19 date tour, the band infuse an unmistakeable Senegalese sound with afro blues and powerful lyricism.

Female power on the night comes courtesy of Reggae singer and songwriter Empress Imani, with a distinctive style described by some as a fusion of ‘Soulful, Sassy, Rootsy, Bashy, Dignified and Queenly’, Imani draws on inspiration from her homelands, St Vincent and The Grenadines.

Groovers and shakers will be safe in the hands of DJS Snuff, JP Kairo and Bombotropics DJs Kalinka and Dave Aardvark, spinning Afrohouse, Hi-Life, Afrobeat and party vibes throughout the session.

Come get back to your ROOTS!
