Dele Sosimi Afrobeat Orchestra
Friday 8th June, 7.30pm
Tickets are £12 in advance (more on the door) and available from the venue in person, from our friends at Earworm Records or online via See Tickets.
Dele Sosimi stands out as one of the most active musicians currently on the Afrobeat scene worldwide.
His most recent releases and accompanying remixes (Too Much Information, E Go Betta, You no fit Touch I am) have opened him up to a whole new audience, performing at festivals all over the world and in London with frequent sellout marathon Afrobeat sets.
Currently based in London, Dele is an educator and instructor in Afrobeat (via his Dele Sosimi Afrobeat Foundation, and as a Visiting Lecturer in Music and Media, London Metropolitan University). Sosimi is abetted by a group of musicians; most of who have either played with him on previous records or have gigged with him on the live circuit. They all have chops to spare and the communication between them is near telepathic.
Support comes from their friends at Tropica, who will also be having their monthly party in the front bar!
