AGBEKO (live) at On Air on Saturday 23rd February 2019
Agbeko (originally an Ewe warrior dance) effortlessly draw inspiration from the golden age of 1970's Nigerian, Ghanaian and Ethiopian dancefloors and deliver it through the filter of 11 young twenty-somethings who grew up on rock, funk and raucous-leaning jazz.
The '22-legged afro-party monster' (Soundclash) released their debut E.P. 'Unite' in July 2017 and are rapidly gaining a reputation across the UK for a fierce, energetic and irresistibly danceable live show. Expect; singalong originals, hard-hitting arrangements of Afro-funk and Ethiojazz rarities all underpinned by politicised lyrical content, dirty guitars, wailing organs and healthy dose of on-stage sub-standard dance moves.
