Preview: Soothsayers featuring Dele Sosimi @ Hideaway (London; Friday 13th April 2018)

Soothsayers Hideaway

On Friday the 13th of April, Soothsayers will be joined by Fela Kuti’s keyboard player of the Egypt 80s era, Dele Sosimi, to bring you a night of Afrobeat-inspired dub.

Even on their own, Soothsayers are nothing short of a spectacle – vocalising a political movement through music in a way that not only makes you feel like you’re protesting but also getting down to their groove-driven music. Being London-based, we are truly blessed to have such dub pioneers within our locality that are exploring musical and cultural fusion. Alongside Dele Sosimi, this will be a Wah Wah 45s night that’s worth putting in your diaries.

The event is made extra enticing by the fact that it’s in the intimate setting of the Hideaway in Streatham. With only 250 people able to attend, it’s worth getting tickets sooner rather than later in order to experience a night full of perfectly sculpted horn lines, distinctive vocals and Sosimi’s boundless energy and captivating stage presence.
