Gig preview: A Night Of Afrobeat & Afro House Feat. Afriquoi & Moniker
18 January 2017
We’re bringing a little bit of summer back to the capital with another night of Afrobeat and Afro house, set to take place on 20 January at The Yard.
The night will feature music from Wild City's Moniker along with a DJ set by underground sensation Afriquoi. Usually a 5 piece live show, Afriquoi is known for their unique combination of Gambian kora, Congolese guitar and Mandinka percussion styles with electronic music.
You can expect a variety of Afro based sub genres at the event, which range from South Africa’s Kwaito, Soweto and energetic Kuduro to Soca music, dancehall and modern interpretations of the African sound in garage and grime.
This is an homage to the music that has influenced and shaped some of today’s most popular sounds. Check out the Facebook event page for updates and more information.
