"Awalé are a a marvellously multicultural band with members from France, Slovakia, UK, Tunisia and Cuba. Their music is Afro-beat mixed with Latin Jazz, Ethiopian Funk, North African Amazigh music and whatever else they fancy. The band are chameleon-like in their flexibility, sidestepping from free jazz sax solos to tight groovy funk guitar lines and back with ease. The band released their debut album produced by none other than Nick 'Dubulah' Page back in May, and look set for great things." - World Music Network.


"Begs repeated listening." – Jane Cornwell, Songlines.


"Awalé's tunes rock." – Rita Ray (DJ, Broadcaster).


"Bringing a distinctive eastern take on afrobeat" – Lopa Kothari, World on 3, BBC3.





"Lokkhi Terra have gone from strength to strength since their first gig in 2006 at a concert titled From Bangla-beat to Afro-beat at London's Queen Elizabeth Hall. Co-founded by the classically trained, jazz-minded British Asian pianist Kishon Khan – who has played with everyone from Havana Cultura to Hugh Masekela – this good-natured London-based collective are now widely acknowledged as an international force to be reckoned with. " - Songlines


The new Lokkhi Terra album, CHE GUAVA'S RICKSHAW DIARIES, was released in March 2012 by Funkiwala Records.

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.
