Global Local record label is bringing us 3 amazing bands for this years Liverpool Sound City. BYOB, Fandjango and Kog and the Zongo Brigade will bring the party flavour and party vibes!
Here comes the sucker punch! These sweaty brassophiles are taking over London and you better watch out. Expect the naughtiest noughties mashups, spine-tingling hip-hop licks, some tasty latin and tropical flavours, and a generous portion of original bass for your face. Inviting a couple of extra-special lip-splitting vocalists on the mic for the next few gigs, be warned – this is not for the faint-hearted.
Hailing from the rolling hills of Lancashire this energetic 5 piece combine the refreshing gypsy flavours of jazz manouche with your favourite pop, rock & hip-hop from the past 3 decades. This band will have your fingers snapping and feet tapping to songs you forgot you used to love.
Kog and The Zongo Brigade
The 9-piece deliver infectious West African vibes from Ghana via Sheffield, with diverse origins conflating to whip up their signature heady brew of afrobeat, soul, funk and reggae otherwise dubbed “Afro-fusion”.
With the leadership of K.O.G, the Ghanaian born force of nature, they are a whirlwind of energy, rhythm and hard hitting musical unity which has been taking the U.K. by storm. Summer 2015 has seen them play the breadth of the UK festival circuit including Glastonbury via their emerging talent competition, via which they were chosen from over 6000 bands to play the massive West Holts stage.
Having released their debut, the “Akwaaba” Live EP, and a album in the works, they are garnering increasing attention and quickly growing their fan base – things are looking very good for this exhilarating and exceptional talented band.
