Description

Louie Louie & Funkiwala Records present “Lokkhi Terra meets Deli Sosimi" live, with the London fusionistas creating a unique sound-clash with ex-Fela Kuti keyboardist and legendary UK Afro-beat ambassador Dele Sosimi.

This concert is the first in a series in the stunning surroundings of the Sir John Soane designed Grade 1 listed St Peter’s Church, Walworth.

ABOUT THE ARTISTS:

This is one of a handful of shows supporting the release of the recording on Funkiwala Records, "Cubafrobeat.
This particular collaboration has been bubbling away for a few years now, teasing audience expectations
with a handful of sold out shows each year in between both bands busy schedules.


‘…this coming together feels particularly inspired.’ 4-Stars Jane Cornwell - Evening Standard

'....a fusion rendered seamless by the synergies existing between Afro-Cuban and Yoruban music, l
anguage and mythology, Cubafrobeat is a total stonking blinder.' Chris May - All About Jazz


Kishon Khan’s Lokkhi Terra have over a number of years now been quietly establishing themselvesas one of London’s more unusual heavyweight outfits, described as “Stunning headliners with a majestic multi-cultural blend of sounds, effortlessly building bridges between rolling Indian raga rhythms, Afro-Cuban grooves, acid jazz/funk and free flowing improvisation" (Timeout London).

Included amongst the band members are London’s top Cuban musicians, adding their infectiousrich musical history to the city’s melting pot. When the band wanted to explore Cuban links with anotherof their favourite traditions, Afrobeat, who better to bring in than one of the originators – maestro Dele Sosimi

His career began when he joined Fela Kuti’s Egypt 80 (1979–86). Sosimi then created Positive Force band with Femi Kuti , with whom he performed from 1986 to 1994. In both bands he was keyboard player, also musical director taking care of re-orchestrating and arranging music as well as handling the recruiting and training of new musicians

“Sosimi creates some of the most bewitching grooves in modern African music” E Jazz News.

Bringing together two Yoruba speaking musics - with different accents, from different sides of the
Atlantic - Havana meets Lagos in London – a Cuban- Afrobeat-Experience. CUBAFROBEAT!

ABOUT THE VENUE:

St Peter's, Walworth is a grade one listed church designed by the celebrated Georgian architect, Sir John Soane. Since its construction in 1825, St Peter's has been at the heart of the community serving the needs of local people. The building was significantly damaged by bombing in the Second World War but was restored to it's former glory in the 1950s. One significant survival of the bombing was the magnificent Bechstein piano which is still played to this day.

Father Michael Robinson, Assistant Curate of St Peter's Walworth said, "We are delighted to be part of this exciting collaboration of community and music, bringing together so many different cultural influences intoa sacred space."
