Inner City Lizard


Welcome all you lovely peoples to "our end of season party"!


The good ship Lizard will wash up on the shores of Tottenham High Road, for a mystical, magical night of mischief and merrymaking, in a venue transformed into a tropical paradise.. There will be rum punch served on ice, palm trees and creatures of the jungles hanging from the roof, heavy Latin, Afro and Gypsy bands to entertain and the best global beats Dj's to shake the Autumn chill from your feet!


You will be greeted by some of the most treasured acts that have performed at the homestead over the summer months including:


Lokkhi Terra (Live)

One of our favourites from The Rollright Fayre festival this year, was the sound of this London-based, multi-membered, global collective. Their point of departure appears to be jazz fusion, but from here they touch down in the streets of Bangladesh, the Afrobeat clubs of Nigeria, the cantinas of Cuba and the beaches of Brazil.


The Turbans (Live)

The band that closed the festival for us at SGP and Playgroup with a raucous crowd singalong! A collective of musicians from Israel, Iran, London, Bulgaria, Turkey and many more (depending on who is in the country at the time). Playing a mixture of middle eastern, Turkish and Irish folk, with a big attitude and a lot of facial hair!! If you haven't seen them, you need to, if you have, you will always want to see them again and again...


Jardares Por Fuera (Live)

Flamenco mix with Hip-Hop Rhumba and attitude, this London based 5 piece are the UK's answer to Barcelona's Ojos De Brujo! Sassy, sexy vocals with a funk fueled latin breakbeat, they always keep the party rocking through the night


James Riley Band (Live):

The charm of James Riley and his ever Expanding Band is unmissable. Blending a range of old Americana, Folk and Bluegrass tunes that get you up and slapping your thigh almost instantly. He has blown us away throughout the summer with infectious melodies, rhythmic guitar and the odd 'spoon' solo thrown in for good measure!


The Racubah Soundsytem DJ's
AdManDu - Piwi - The Man from Timbuktu

North Wales finest collective of world music enthusiast's descend on London for 1 night only. Digging from a range of genres including black American funk groove's, Cumbia's, Soukous, Mambo, Guaracha, Descarga, Compas, Banda, Rhumba, you name that tropical groove and these guys have dug it out!! Dust off your dancing shoes, and they will surely excite with their dusty old records!


Dj CousCous

The Lizard Stage maestro always brings something fresh to the dance floor. Mixing a range of styles from Afro, Latin, Breakbeat, Drum n Bass, Gypsy brass, Ska and Hip-Hop, this Dj journeys all over the globe, whilst keeping a filthy skank and an elegant swing to the rhythm!


Dj Malaka

Rumpus and Balkan Beats London head honcho, DJ Malaka is one of the best Gypsy Beat Dj's in the UK right now. From organising the most hedonistic party in London, to Djing with some of the finest Balkan bands, if you want Oompa in your music, then this guy will march you straight to the beat!!


Dj Fred Balkayou

A little treat for you, Fred has been playing on the festival circuit and running a successful event called Balkan Sonic for the last few years in London. His ear for old swing classics and gypsy rhythms have made his sets a real presence and his mix at Glade this year for the Lizard pretty much made the festival for most of those lucky enough to hear it.

Album Review: Lokkhi Terra – Cubangla [Funkiwala Records; June 2020]

Mother Africa’s children do her proud once more in spreading her spirit across what is a rather large diaspora, considering she spent rather a long time beside humanity’s cradle. And just at the moment where it needs some cajoling to get up and stop feeling sorry for itself, in steps…

Album Review: Lokkhi Terra meets Dele Sosimi – Cubafrobeat [Funkiwala Records; June 2018]

The holy trinity of pleasure, music that serves mind, body and soul. Cubafrobeat simultaneously feeds them all. The new Lokkhi Terra and Dele Sosimi collaboration show off jazzy solos to power your intellect, but never detract from the chance to lose yourself to dance. Brought together by pianist Kishon Khan,…
