Kicking off the series this Monday, December 6th, is Congolese guitarist Niwel Tsumbu’s Heartbeat with his own distinctive fusion of new jazz, rhumba, world, flamenco, rock, soukous and classical. Keep your eyes peeled for the announcement of some special guests in the line-up.
Dublin favourites Yankari take the stage on Monday December 13th, with rhythms, melodies and parables from their Yoruba and Igbo roots with vocal hooks delivered in pidgin-English - a sound reminiscent of the Afrobeat greats of the 60s and 70s, with support from the arresting musicality of Selu & the Living Things.
Manden Express will close out 2021 with a bang on Monday December 27th, with their explosive performance that fuses traditional and contemporary styles of West African music from the Mande Empire (now known as Mali) alongside infectious Afrobeat rhythms. Limerick’s Elikya - New School Congolese Rhymba Orchestra, with their hybrid blend of Rumba, Soukous and seben, will play support on the night.
