Afla Sackey & Afrik Bawantu at The Empire Bar + DJ BlondeZilla
Saturday, February 24th, 2018
8:00 PM
The Empire Bar
291 Mare Street, London, United Kingdom
Afrik Bawantu brings an Afrolution, aka conscious solution to your Saturday night. Their music calls for consciousness and togetherness in time of division and restlessness.

Afla Sackey & Afrik Bawantu is a collective producing African rhythm-driven, dance inducing fusion with traditional roots, formed by Ghanaian vocalist and djembe drummer Afla Sackey.

Afrik Bawantu’s original compositions melt together highlife from West African percussion and more funk, rock genres, enhancing the cross-cultural collaboration. The uplifting rhythm section in harmony with roaring brass, accompanied by high-powered bass lines, creates a powerful Afro-Funk sound with a passion that drives audiences to the dance floors.

DJ BlondeZilla will be playing tunes on the night. Spinning a set of pan-African vinyl treats from every corner of the continent, you can expect anything from classic West African funk and Afrobeat, to 1970s Kenyan-Congolese fusion, Somalian pop, Senegalese Sabar music and beats from beyond the shores.
