Juju! Showcase: Sabbey Drummers International

This is a very special showcase event by JUJU and Afro-Palace, for a very special performance.

SABBEY INTERNATIONAL are led by master percussionists, multi-instrumentalists and singers Afla Sackey and Yaw Asumadu. They mix traditional dance drumming and intensely intricate polyrhythms with beautifully harmonised chants from the lengths and breadth of their native country, Ghana.

Although a new project for these musicians, they have been playing together for more than 20 years and separately for their whole lives. This repertoire has been readying and waiting to surface for a long time, and it shows. Definitely set to be one of the most uplifting and technically brilliant music performances you'll find this side of West Africa.

Due to the change of date, we are making this a special FREE ENTRY ALL NIGHT, so get there early and get ready to dance!

DJ from 7.30pm.
Performance from 8.30pm.
