The Queen of the musical style known as kuduro, blending frenetic African rhythms with blaring beats, gives upbeat and energetic performances. The Guardian’s ‘One to Watch’.

From her native Africa, she set aside the chaos and kept close to her heart the fragrances, colours and endless games with her sisters. But above all the sounds, vibrations and omnipresent songs, those cheerful bubbles that brought rhythm to her childhood, she who had started to dance before she knew how to walk.

Support from Blessing Magore
Zimbabwean born Blessing Magore is one of UK’s rising singer-songwriters who has created his own unique fusion of Afro-funk/Reggae with hints of samba.

+ DJ set from Ex-Friendly
Ex-Friendly’s mixes span the globe. Expect all tempos, grooves and vibes – African, South American, Funk, Soul, Hip Hop, Jazz, House and Reggae (and all the best genre-busting stuff). Resident DJ on Totally Wired Radio, Universal Rhythms & Radio Alhara راديو الحارة.
