Village Cuts


~~~ Kongo Dia Ntotila ~~~
We are super excited to present our headline act, with a large dose of Afro-joy! Blaring horns, Congolese seben guitar + infectious grooves - they’ll be playing a blend of Africa’s finest dance music styles, revived, modernised, and seamlessly fused with a neat dose of jazz.

~~~ Biram Seck and AWALÉ trio ~~~
Senegalese singer and songwriter Biram Seck has a voice truly unique for its raw husky quality and deep emotion. With Kaw Secka on percussion and Thibaut Remy on guitar, the trio plays traditional senegalese folk music.

~~~ Los Pussatas Fritas ~~~
Newcomers on the scene, this 5 piece Brazilian disco outfit will be opening proceedings with a bang, strutting their stuff playing brand new music.


~~~ Volta 45 ~~~
A firm favourite, after smashing our Shoreditch club-night in March, we had to get the man back to play again. A true selector from London's Doin' Our Own Thing, who will be showcasing his incredible collection of rare African & Caribbean gems. Expect to hear songs for the first time, from across the continents!

~~~ Village Cuts ~~~
Residents ELVÉ + SWUNI on rotation playing their signature blend of African dance grooves and UK underground bangers.

Event Review: Kongo Dia Ntotila @ Rich Mix (London; 24th May 2018)

From the first jazz-solo drum rhythms of David Lessie that opened the show, to the cyclical afro-lead from John Kelly’s guitar, every beat of each song resonated throughout the grooving crowd, and certainly through band leader Mulele Matondo, who I’m sure jived to every single note of the show, constantly…
