GRUPO LOKITO
An incendiary fusion of Congolese and Latin vibrations

Formed in 2006 by British Latin pianist Sara McGuinness and Congolese singer Jose Hendrix Ndelo, Grupo Lokito’s musicians are a mix of Congolese, Latin and British artists who have chosen to make London their home.

Lokito’s energetic front-line of singers are true performers, and when the groove steps up a notch in the blistering salsa and seben sections, their outlandish dancing has to be seen to be believed.

SAMBATTALION
High energy brazilian drums and tropical anarchy

Sambattalion are an a radically inclusive samba band that formed in July 2014 out of a combined passion for banging drums and having a good time. Expect high energy samba fusion with their own unique twist of fun and individuality from this East London bloco.

FEDZILLA
Mighty, multi-lingual lyricism with an international flavour

UK-based half German / Chilean MC, rapper, slam poet and host Fedzilla specializes in multi-lingual lyricism, transferring her raw energy directly to the crowd. Her international flows range from Ragga to Hip Hop and everything in between. Fedzilla has also been rocking crowds as part of the majestic 9-piece London-Havana soundclash Wara.
