18th Club Bango Bongo with Kekele –live + AfrikaJam DJs: Hare & Hounds 8pm
"Kékélé, the Congolese answer to Cuba's Buena Vista Social Club, are survivors from that era [60s]; now based in Paris and mostly in their 50s, they are still cheery and on good form, and are enjoying a new lease of life as musicians" Sweet melodies and swinging, sensual music. From the first note, the audience is seduced by percolating percussion, honeyed voices and glorious guitars.. A homage to the sultry Cuban grooves that beat in partnership with rhythms of the Congo, the music is ardent, playful and mature, delivered by an unbeatable roster of veteran performers including Nyboma Mwan Dido, Syran Mbenza, Loko Massengo, Bumba Massa and Wuta-Mayi plus five piece band
