Preview: Afriqoui @ Oslo Hackney (London; Friday 6th December 2019) 

Afiquoi Oslo

Afriqoui’s ‘Mokako’ caught my undivided attention while I was still studying in college over five years ago, and its absolutely irresistible grooves have stayed with me as a number-one party track ever since. No DJ set feels complete without visiting the Afriqoui boys, mixing traditional African musical elements, such as Congolese cyclical guitar, the addition of the xylophones, and the West African kora harp played by griot Jally Kebba Susso, all beautifully combined with a bass-heavy synth electronica. Afriqoui will guarantee you move your feet to every beat as they explore various dance music genres.

Although producing very little recorded music as a band, they have also played live less and less, often performing as a DJ collective. However, the intimate venue that is Oslo Hackney has done what all dance lovers have wanted and craved – and got the live band back together!

A surely unmissable evening of feel-good dancing grooves.
