Description

On August bank holiday Sunday we have a transatlantic afrobeat exchange between Newen Afrobeat (Chile) and London Afrobeat Collective (UK). After having met during tours of Nigeria, these two torchbearers of global afrobeat join forces for a night of heavy brass, hypnotic chant and infectious dance in East London.
Chilean afrobeat orchestra Newen Afrobeat have shared the stage with afrobeat royalty such as Tony Allen, Oghene Kologbo and Femi and Seun Kuti, and are today recognised globally as one of the most impressive and energetic projects in the genre. On August bank holiday Sunday, they grace the club with their brass-heavy elevations straight from the founder.
For the discerning local party people, London Afrobeat Collective need no introduction. Their explosive brand of afrobeat has taken them from the capital to Nigeria to the West Holts stage and back. Weaving hypnotic grooves, pounding rhythms and soaring melodies, North London's politicised party machine are an incendiary live act who channel the spirit of the afrobeat founder for 2017.
Elevator Afro Club DJs will see you through your evening with a handpicked selection of funk, jazz and disco from Africa and further afield.

The spirit of Fela is alive and well in East London.
Don’t miss out on the underground afrobeat party of the year.
