Formed in Brixton in 2006, Yaaba Funk brings Ghana to London in their own spectacular way . Huge energy, rock solid syncopation, deep bass and tight horn section, fronted by the dynamic duo of Richmond Kessie and Helen McDonald, Yaaba Funk have gained a reputation as one of London's hottest and most original live acts. Gritty highlife, afro-funk and brokenbeat is combined with stunning vocals, heavy anlaog synth bass lines and raucous percussion to create the perfect recipe to keep the dance floor quaking all night.
Kakatsitsi are a group of traditional drummers and singers from the Ga tribe of Southern Ghana. The Ga are extraordinary hand drummers, who produce distinct tones which add a truly melodic quality to their rhythm. The one special aspect of all these rhythms is a strong dancing beat. These rhythms and songs are of a ritual and ceremonial nature played for royals. Last summer they played to an ecstatic crowd at Glastonbury where they collaborated with dance music duo The Orb. Kakatsitsi's music is an irresistible, exhilarating and exuberant mix which is hard not to dance to - this is the roots of afro-funk.
United Vibrations - An incredible quartet that fuses the raw rudiments of jazz, afro, psychedelia and punk and the result is quite spectacular by all proportions. Huge low-end grooves and anchored free-spirited experimentation, recall John Coltrane and Sun Ra. To encapsulate their sound, they boldly created their own term 12 Tone, which reflects the cultural melting pot of their surroundings and their world view. Accompanied by poignant chants, this virtuoso South London 4 piece will take you on a transcendental voyage of cosmic proportions
