Farai & The Forest Dawn (UK/Zimbabwe)
“Afro-Soul, Rock and Roll”

Meet Farai & the Forest Dawn, the exciting 'Afro-Soul, Rock and Roll' five piece currently making waves in the London music scene.
Known by fans as FFD, the band play regular shows in and out of London, recently making their Northern debut performing at the Great Bridlington Seafood Festival.
The band are working on the Come Up Season Performance (CUSP) concerts. Organised 'by artists, for artists' to be held at o2 venues across the country, as well as releasing more music. Watch out for their EP later this year.
Check Farai & the Forest Dawn out on Twitter and Facebook: @TheForestDawn for more info.

Boubacar Kafando & Zaama Nooma Band
“Kora master”
Lead by Boubacar - a talented Kora player percussionist, singer songwriter and composer from the Mossi's ethnic group in Burkina Faso who has lived in Paris since 2003. Before Zaama Nooma Band, Boubacar played in mandingo orchestras such as Bankadi live, Faso Music and the Djamakunu orchestra. Boubacar founded the cultural centre “Zounoogo” in Sapone-Marche, Burkina Faso in 2009.

Since 2010, Boubacar has pushed his music forward into unique fusion with his new five/eight piece band named after his non profit organisation (2007) Zaama Nooma band (meaning bringing people together). He delivers an excellent blend of Burkina traditional music with jazz, funk, rock, blues and Afrobeat with lyrics in which harmony and hope are the general sentiments.

Boubacar made his first album called “Douni Zougou” meaning 'on this planet' in 2010. They have been performing extensively to great acclaim at many concert venues and many events and festivals all over France & Africa (Burundi, Kenya, Burkina Faso...) the United States and in the United Kingdom. Worthy of gracing any stage, they are exploring more opportunities to perform in greater venues either as a solo date or as part of an event/festival in Europe Africa and the United States. 2016 is shaping up to be very promising with the announcement of their new album “Faut Pas se Diviser” meaning “must not be divided”.
