ROOTS STAGE / SAT: 20.10-21.00

Born out of a deep collaboration between long-time friends K.O.G/Kweku from Ghana (K.O.G and the Zongo Brigade) and Tom Excell (MD, guitarist and song writer of acclaimed jazz/ soul afro-beat pioneers Nubiyan Twist), the 4 piece live show features K.O.G on vocals, balafon and percussion, Tom Excell on guitar, percussion and electronics, Dwayne Kilvington (Wonky Logic) on synths and MPC and Finn Booth (Nubiyan Twist) on drums.

Having played their first show for 5000 people in Australia to commemorate Nelson Mandela’s 100th birthday, and tearing the roof off The Great Escape in Brighton for their second, the project is picking up momentum rapidly and the boys have already performed at some very important venues and festivals including Shambala and The Great Escape festival just to mention a few.

Apart from performing on Roots stage as a 4-piece band, Tom Excell & K.O.G will be joining Mundo Muzika’s adventure at the Enchanted Forest for a late-night DJ set on Saturday.
