Jumping off from the sonic springboard of Afrofuturism, grime and future soul, all fused together with the fearless spontaneity of jazz. Steam Down is an arts collective comprised of Ahnansé, Alex Rita, Brother Portrait, SawaManga, Theon Cross, Nadeem, Benjamin Appiah, Dominic Canning and Nache, as well as a wider community of notable artists and musicians across the UK.
Founded by multi-instrumentalist, composer and producer Ahnansé in 2017, Steam Down has born out of a weekly jam session and quickly become a household name in London's music scene.
Striving to create an immersive experience, the band is complemented by the exuberant energy of the extended family who regularly attend to bring vibes and support. Together, musicians and everyone else who shows up and gets down, go on an aural exploration of past-present-future, with each performance proving to be a co-creative piece of magic where everyone's participation matters.
The cutting-edge band is set to generate an exciting performance at Compressor House between their wide musical family and audience, joined by special surprise guests for the evening.
