A Celebration Of Fela Kuti

It is very difficult to put into words the significance and stature of an individual like Fela Kuti, and his contribution to music, politics and culture across the twentieth century. A pioneer of Afrobeat - a genre of which he was at the forefront - Fela gifted the world with songs such as Beasts of No Nation and Water Get No Enemy - a celebration is perhaps fitting of a man who has given so much to us. Were very lucky to have his former bandmate Bukky Leo and his Black Egypt collective retell many of the Nigerian multi-instrumentalists hits at the Jazz Caf.

Ibibio Sound Machine - Cardiff

Ibibio Sound Machine is a hybrid of African and electronic sounds, fronted by Nigerian/British singer Eno Williams. The Guardian described ISM as an "adventurous update to Afrobeat and high life". The Talking Fish, the standout single from their self-titled debut merged together funky basslines and scatty synths. Album number two Uyai, pushes their sound further with more experimentation, crisper production, and grander songs, that scream for your attention. Tickets on sale - Wednesday, June 21.
