AFLA SACKEY & AFRIK BAWANTU PRESENT: THE FUNK OF AFRICA
We celebrate the best funk from across the ages to emerge from the great continent of Africa in the company of Ghanaian musician Afla Sackey and friends. A genre that is maybe not as notorious as afrobeat or Ethio jazz, funk has nevertheless played a crucial role in the musical growth of Africa through the 20th century, with the likes of Manu Dibango, Francis Bebey, Mulatu Astatke, Tony Allen and Fela Kuti all imbuing its characteristics in their own music.
Presented by The Jazz Cafe.
This is an 18+ event.
