Harare:
Irresistable marimba fuelled Afro dance rhythms?
Harare is one of the few groups to be playing Zimbabwean dance music in Europe. Formed by virtuoso marimbist Kuda Matimba (a member of the Zimbabwe's legendary Bhundu Boys), 4-piece Harare combines different styles from Jit Jive to traditional hypnotic rhythms of the mbira (lamellaphone/thumb piano). Their music - sung in the Shone language of Zimbabwe - is about social awareness, life yesterday, today and tomorrow, advice, respect, love for one another and compassion, as the musicians express pain, love, wisdom and rage. Whatever you hope for when you think of Zimbabwean music be sure that Harare has it aplenty: ringing jingling guitars, rich-toned marimba, irresistible dance rhythms, swooping basslines, uplifting vocals … they’re all there, plus the unavoidable big grin that the music always puts on your face.

Mama Brass:
New Orleans inspired funk infused with latin and West African riddims: Mama Brass bring the spice of a brass band with a fresh grating of funk zest. Originally from Oxford, Mama Brass have crossed continents and climbed mountains on the way to the big smoke, to this day still shaking the Beninoise sand from their glittery boots. Dashing out a heavy breakfast of original bangers and reworkings of old and new classics - from Whitney to Rita Ora, Mama's here to take your troubles away.

The Saboristas keep the music as true as possible to its Latin roots, capturing a rawness loved by so many.
