21 FriDele Sosimi Read more
Dele Sosimi is back again for an extremely exciting show here at LAYLOW. If you managed to make it down to the last one you will know this is not one to miss.
Dele Sosimi stands out as one of the most active mu-sicians currently on the Afrobeat scene worldwide. Dele‘s career began when he joined Fela‘s Aniku-lapo-Kuti‘s Egypt 80 (1979–1986) and then subse-quently with Fela‘s son Femi Anikulapo-Kuti‘s Posi-tive Force (1986-1994). In both bands he was musical director and keyboard player. Since Fela created Afrobeat, Dele‘s Afrobeat pedigreee is therefore im-peccable. The music is a blend of complex but highly dan-ceable funk grooves, Nigerian traditional music (in-cluding hi-life), African percussion, underpinning the jazz horns and solos from other instruments, as well as rhythmical singing.
Dele will be accopanied by :
Mr Olakunle Olofinjana, Drums/Backing VocalsBUY A TICKET
Mr Phil Dawson, Guitar
Mr Suman Joshi, Bass /Guitar
Mr Graeme Flowers or Yelfris Valdez on Trumpet
Mr Justin Thurgur Trombone/Backing Vocals
28 FriS4U Read more
S4U (Something For You) are the London collective headed up by the rather brilliantly named Rosita Bonita and Prinz George. They met a while ago and lost touch before finding their way back to each other via a series of coincidences that Prinz credits to fate and Rostia, cosmic alignment. Influenced by the sounds and styles of the 90s, their first complete audio-visual release comes directed by Prinz George and is full of bucket hats, ski masks, baby blue bomber jackets and really awesome dance routines choreographed by Rosita Bonita. It’s super lo-fi, completely addictive and we’ve got the exclusive. Press play and get to know S4U…BUY A TICKET
