Yaaba Funk – U.K & Africa

ROOTS STAGE / SAT: 22.45-23.45

Imagine Fela Kuti’s legendary Shrine club relocated to South London.

Yaaba Funk… Vivid touches of contemporary London added to the 70s heyday of Ghanaian Hi-Life. P-Funk style synth bass, psychedelic desert blues and deep percussion. Family Stone inflected horns and up front the vibrant high energy duo of Chief Commander Richmond Kessie and Helen ‘Lady Yaaba’ McDonald.

Yaaba Funk! Technicolour blasts of sound and vision. A sixteen legged groove machine that leaves not a stationary soul in sight.
