Two of the UK's best live music outfits join forces to put on a mighty fine night spanning roots, reggae, afrobeat, highlife, global bass and everything in between at the creative sanctuary and staunchly independent Passing Clouds.
We're honoured to be hosting exclusive London UK tour dates and Passing Clouds debuts for two of the UK's best bands KOG & The Zongo Brigade and Solko. With support from Celtic reggae trailblazers FeelGood Culture who will also be launching their much-anticipated debut EP.
On deck duty we have Chief Rockas - producers and selectors of the best in roots, digi and dancehall. Bristol's leading Afro-tropical crew - Lengoma DJs (Mango Park b2b Area Boys) - take over the upstairs room dropping the finest in global bass culture. Last but not least Junior Ras will be spreading rootsy, brass infused vibes laced with stomping bass lines.
Over the past year, between us, we've had the pleasure of hosting Groundation, London Afrobeat Collective, Nubiyan Twist, The Mouse Outfit, Dizraeli & DownLow, The Hempolics, The Drop and Resonators to name a few.
