Presenting one in a week-long series of uniquely curated music and arts events, titled Illuminations. Taking place across a variety of venues around the city November 3-10th
OWINY SIGOMA BAND
Owiny Sigoma Band unleashed ‘Power Punch’ in April 2013 via Brownswood Recordings. Spinning on its London>Nairobi axis, the group continue to redefine universal, artistic and cultural exchange blending traditional Kenya nyatiti and Luo music with Western songwriting and production techniques. Power Punch, as its title suggests, is a confident, radiant, album packed with stirring, sometimes downright frisky jams.
Power Punch sees the Owiny Sigoma Band reverse the original dynamic as the Kenyan contingent (Joseph and Charles) departed Nairobi for recording sessions in North London. This environmental change is naturally reflected in the music and whilst Power Punch retains the stealthy, hypnotic groove of its predecessor, there is a greater intensity, weight and depth to the music: East African folkloric tales melding with London’s musical sundry.
Providing another potent mixture of modern Afrobeat and global influences from Cape Town, the highly talented John Wizards will also perform.
