Big Ben Jorge
Big Ben Jorge is a south London based group playing explosive tropical dance music inspired by 70’s Brazilian pop music, particularly that of maestro Jorge Ben. Infectious groove and audacious costumes galore! 'Big Ben Jorge are fun. Having drawn members from bands including Electric Jalaba, Teotima, Cocos Lovers, Haraket and Flying Ibex, this band springs from a love of...well...Brazilian pop music. With influences ranging from Samba to Northeastern and baiao styles, this diverse gathering of musicians found common ground in the toothsome grooves and nimble melodies of the Brazilian chart music of the 70's and 80's. Particularly, of course, that of Brazilian pop legend Jorge Ben Jor, BBJ's namesake. They pay heady homage to these artists, and the result is explosive and gripping to see live. Believe it - Big Ben Jorge are fun.'
The Odd Beats
Multinational hip shimmying gypsy folk and psychedelia from far-away lands, The Odd Beats unfailingly deliver an exhilarating, exuberant and intercontinental sonic journey.
Singer Dila V’s powerful vocals and endless energy shines through while Fati Ebrem’s intricate guitar playing style and his unique use of the wah wah pedal mesmerises those who experience The Odd Beats. Their music is embellished with eastern percussions and powerful ethnic rhythms that make you dance like a lunatic!
With storming appearances at Glastonbury Festival on the Shangri-La Hell Stage, Bestival, Secret Garden Party, Wilderness and a host of other UK appearances, Dila and her Odd Beats are fast securing themselves a reputation as a not-to-be-missed live act.
