One Tree Island - 30th Birthday Party on Saturday 13th August 2022
30 years ago an Island was discovered by a merry band of Mancunian revellers. News spread, and they came from across the city and beyond in search of something unique. Somewhere they could soak up global rhythms, bang their drums, and shake their maracas.
The spirit of the island moved from place to place becoming legendary for hosting the best parties with the best people around. It's time to party!! Celebrating our 30 birthday in style, we bring you our very special guest SENS SAGNA AND THE KAJAMOR FAMILY - an 8 piece band comprising of the most fun and funky musicians in Manchester today - The hottest super-group exploding from the city scene, proudly carries the musical and social banner of Afro beat, reggae and ska influenced by the powerful rhythmical masters TOURE KUNDA and FELA KUTI, originators of the Afrobeat sound.
Plus John Haycock is a multi instrumental live looping artist passionate about affecting acoustic sounds with electronics exploring new sonority. John takes his home made kora (21 string African Harp) and runs it through a series of electronic devices creating lush soundscapes and solid beats, overlaying this with woodwind instruments. Bridging the gap between ancient West African Folk melodies and modern electronica.
Then at 8pm we’ll be moving inside the building, where SENS SAGNA AND THE KAJAMOR FAMILY will take to the stage.
And of course our resident DJ’s Marco, Citizen Simmo, and Balaphonic ( aka moodymanc ) will be there throughout, with global rhythms which fill any dance floor. World Dance Music without borders.
Music Genres: African, Afrobeat, Salsa, Ska, World Music
