About the Event

After a January break we are very excited to announce another musically stunning night headlined by the mighty

KRAR COLLECTIVE

They serve up a mind-blowing feast of exuberant Ethiopian dance tunes. Led by Temesgen Zeleke, student of jazz legend Mulatu Astatke, the band perform a contemporary take on roots music reflecting the diversity of cultures within Africa’s second most populous country. In the virtuoso hands of Zeleke, the ancient Krar lyre becomes a gritty rock guitar, weaving around the stunning vocals of Genet Assefa and driving rhythms of Amare Mulugeta on traditional kebero drums. The line up has recently expanded to include Baby Masinko on the one-string Ethiopian masinko fiddle and Dawit Seyoum on bass krar for added groove! “

As always, Volta 45 and Poly-Ritmo will be DJing until the early hours, playing a selection of their finest cuts from around the globe.

"One of the grooviest and most hypnotic bands at Damon Albarn’s Africa Express bonanza.” Time Out
