AJ HOLMES & THE HACKNEY EMPIRE: Afro-Pop meets East London Tropical

K.O.G & THE ZONGO BRIGADE: Hip-shaking, foot stomping West African rhythms

THE BROS: Afro-Brazil Reggae skank

 

AJ Holmes and The Hackney Empire:

From the depths of Hackney come a band that are taking over the world with their unique blend of Afro pop with a home grown British sensibility. They are A.J. Holmes & The Hackney Empire. Their music hangs over classic London narratives in the vein of Ian Dury and Squeeze, they have created a feel-good soundtrack for 21st century tropical pearly kings and queens. Influenced by the capital’s rich cultural melting pot, where Africa meets London and falls in love! Fusing wildly different genres of music together with such a deft hand that you’d think they had always walked hand in hand.

K.O.G & The Zongo Brigade:

Fronted by the infamous K.O.G, this 9 piece collective brings you the best hip-shaking, foot stomping West African rhythms the U.K has to offer. Fresh off the back of their UK tour in support of the incredible 7 track Akwaaba Live EP, the band have been voted runners up in Glastonbury’s own Emerging Talent Competition, guaranteeing them a main stage slot at the festival! This, along with a whole host of festival slots including Soundwave Croatia, Boomtown Fair, Kendal Calling and Eden Festival to name but a few, guarantees them to be one of the hottest bands of the summer!

The Bros:

Kicking off the night they’ve got 3 Piece Brazilian Reggae band, The Bros. Julio Cesar Sanhaco, Jamiro Oliveira Jr, & Marcos Santana serve up some afro-brazilian flavours.

As always Movimentos DJs keep the room jumping.
