K.O.G & The Zongo Brigade

kogjazzcafe

Under the guidance of the outrageously talented Ghanaian force of nature Kweku Sackey, aka K.O.G, and the whirlwind of energy that is Jamaican rapper Franz Von Song, Afro-fusion 8-piece band K.O.G & The Zongo Brigade deliver infectious, high energy West African grooves via Sheffield, drawing on afrobeat, soul, funk, rock, hip-hop and reggae which has fast gained recognition in London and all over the UK.

K.O.G’s signature mix of high-energy songs, raps, operatic vocal effects, along with the hard-hitting patois raps from the spirited Franz Von Song and a dedicated band of serious musical badmen, has led the band to perform on some of the biggest stages including Glastonbury, Reading and Leeds Festivals and numerous clubs and venues around Europe.

We are pleased to welcome them for the London date of their tour following the release of their debut album Wahala Wahala, released 8th March via Heavenly Sweetness.

Opening the show will be the nine piece Leeds based soul fusion band, Necktr.
