Afro grooves, electronics and fierce energy.
Onipa brings a raw, fiercely energetic new sound which fuses electronics, afrofuturism, dance and fire.
Born out of deep collaboration between long time friends KOG (Kweku of Ghana of KOG and the Zongo Brigade) and Tom Excell (MD of Nubiyan Twist), the 4 piece live show features KOG on vocals, balafon and percussion, Tom Excell on guitar, percussion and electronics, Dwayne Kilvington (Wonky Logic) on synths and MPC and Finn Booth (Nubiyan Twist) on drums.
Joining them will be electronic Afro Latin quartet Penya and Creole/Caribbean percussion fusion trio Dowdelin.
Música Macondo boss and top selector Tim Garcia will be opening proceedings in the DJ booth.
