Lagos To London ft. Joro Afrobeat + Léa and the Sunflowers


After a sold out launch show, Lagos to London returns to Paper Dress for another night celebrating all things Afrobeat & Afrodisco with a blistering live afrobeat set from 9-piece JORO with support from Afro Jazz newcomers Léa & The Sunflowers.

Comprised of a group of experienced musicians from different genres who share a love of afrobeat and afro-funk music. They mix the sounds of the legendary Fela Kuti with their own originals and modern afrobeat to produce music you can’t help but dance to.

Léa & The Sunflowers
Afuturistic Afro-Jazz band with a genre-bending sound from high life, to bossa-nova and reggae. Drawing inspiration from Congolese legend Franco Luambo, reggae icon Bob Marley, and Malian artists such as Fatoumata Diawara and Rokia Traorè; Léa’s music largely talks about life, peace, and freedom while reflecting on the state of the world.



This show is part of the 'Hello Again, Hackney' series which Hackney are running to encourage local residents to return to the borough's grassroots music venues after a very difficult period.

Each 'Hello Again, Hackney' ticket admits 2 guests - 1 guest must show proof of Hackney residency on admission.

This is an 18+ event

Presented by Paper Dress Vintage & Beat Exchange.
