WHAT?
In a true double bill, full of superb global sounds from London’s Strut label. Basically: one of the favourite labels of radio/DJ/jazz-guru Gilles Peterson. The Souljazz Orchestra, from Canada, ensures wonderful up-tempo afro/latin/soul / jazz. Kondi Band is the brand new Afro-electronic collaboration between blind thumb-piano player Sorie Kondi from Sierra Leona and American DJ/producer Chief Boima.

FOR FANS OF
