11415609_10153317315500867_683236731764177436_o.jpg

Juju presents the finest selection of true roots music from the heart of Africa, blending raw traditional music with genre-crossing fusion performances. And as it's our Summer party, it's time for something REALLY special...

A Krar is the Ethiopian 5 or 6 stringed harp and Krar Collective are an incredible Ethiopian band led by Temesegen Zeleke, a former pupil of veteran Ethiopian vibraphone player Mulatu Astatke, on Krar, with flawless vocalist (and dancer) Genet Asefa and the driving rhythms of Grum Begashaw on drums. Don't expect to sit still at a Krar Collective gig! This is music to take you to a different place, to move your soul and rock you with hypnotic rhythms.

"one of the most rousing, reliable new African bands of the year" The Guardian

"One of the grooviest and most hypnotic bands at Damon Albarn's recent Africa Express bonanza. Expect a funky dance marathon." Time Out
