The mighty 12-piece No Go Stop are much more than a tribute to past glories, they are a living, breathing evocation of the life-force that is Afrobeat. Boasting an impressive repertoire of self-penned, new material, they have recently released their debut record "Agbara Orin”. Driving percussion, brass encrusted rhythms and epic instrumental solos set the pace while echoes of Old Soul from Marie Lister’s Vocals, catch the timeless quality of that ancestral funk sound. No Go Stop are truly on a mission to bring something exciting and new whilst staying true to Fela Kuti's musical mission to present the heart of jazz with the soul of Africa and keep you dancing till dawn.
Senegalese multi instrumentalist, singer and songwriter Amadou Diagne weaves his melodies and rhythms with vocals that though soft and warm can deliver great power. He has a creativity and improvisational freedom backed by years of knowledge, skill and understanding of the traditions and styles of West African music.
Area Boys are a afro-global-bass DJ duo from Bristol.
Together they discovered their love for african rhythms ranging from Fela Kuti’s afrobeat to Ghanaian High Life, east African Soukous, to more modern “afrobeats”: Kuduro from Angola, Kwaito house from South Africa, and Azonto from West Africa. In between you will find South American sprinkles of Colombian Cumbia, Raggaeton and Jamaican Dancehall.
