We are delighted to welcome Afrofunk band, Afla Sackey & Afrik Bawantu + Raz & Afla
Afrofunk band, Afla Sackey
Afla Sackey & Afrik Bawantu has been captivating audience with Sackey’s musical creations since the band was formed in 2006. Vibrant percussion accompanied by high-powered bass lines and roaring brass combine to create their own take on afrofunk /jazz/ afrobeat fusion with an energy that drives audiences to dance floors. Even the bands name Bawantu means “Let’s Dance” which was influenced by the cultural legacy of dance being everyday life in Afla’s community.
Raz & Afla
From their East London studio, Raz Olsher and Afla Sackey are creating a truly exciting brand of afro-house deeply anchored in West African musical traditions, with catchy vocal harmonies and percussion-heavy arrangements. An unprecedented musical fusion which owes much to its creators’ experience, as true mainstays of the London music scene for the past twenty years.
