DEAD PLANTS

6.30-7.30pm

Dead Plants are a kick ass, shoutin hillbilly blues, busking band, discovered on the worn out steets of London. One guy was spotted slapping the everlasting life out of a bass, while the other beat out hillbilly blues on an acoustic guitar; they stamped out the beat on the cobblestones and hollered out insane lyrics about Johny Cash, the cowd were hooked!

DIABEL CISSOKHO

9-10pm

alt

Senegalese musician Diabel Cissokho is part of the great line of Cissokho griots. Growing up in Dakar and Tambacounda, surrounded by a rich musical heritage and a family of musicians, Diabel began playing a number of traditional instruments. However, Diabel’s affinity with the kora was clear from an early age.

Diabel’s musical pedigree is exceptional. International tours with his family’s band Bannaya led toa long stint as Baaba Maal’s kora player, as well as with acclaimed musicians such as Kandia Kouyate, Pee Wee Ellis, Omar Pene, Cheikh Lo, Ernest Ranglin and Youssou N’Dour. Now well established in the UK, Diabel’s virtuosic talent, his “resonant voice and rocking kora style” (Songlines), have been welcomed everywhere from WOMAD and Glastonbury to London’s Barbican, where he performed alongside Femi Kuti, Cheikh Lo and Manu Dibango, and more recently in the Queen Elizabeth Hall London with his band.

HARARE

10.15-11.30pm

alt

Harare are one of only a handful of Zimbabwean dance ensembles in Europe today. Fronted by the exuberance and charisma of Zimbabwean musician Kuda Matimba, Harare feature a groundbreaking line-up, mixing the buzzing acoustics of the Southern African rich-toned marimba, mbira, ringing jingling guitars, swooping basslines, irresistible dance rhythms and uplifting vocals. A virtuoso marimbist, Kuda Matimba was a member of Zimbabwe’s legendary Bhundu Boys, a groundbreaking force in the African music industry, as they paved the way for more artists to reach commercial success in Europe and the US.

Harare celebrates both the past and the future of African dance music and brings a spectacular mix of Southern African musical styles, particularly the musical styles of Zimbabwe. Kuda strongly believes in the importance of preserving one’s heritage through music. Harare’s music is about social awareness, life yesterday, today and tomorrow, advice, respect, love for one another and compassion. It expresses emotions such as pain, love, wisdom and rage. Words to the songs are performed in the Shona language of Zimbabwe. Kuda brings both old and new compositions and arrangements to the Harare set. Their powerful and vibrant stage-shows have an unstoppable momentum guaranteed to fill the dance floor.
