KONKOMA - Signed to SOUNDWAY RECORDS – purveyors of the finest West African Afro Sounds - KONKOMA's self-titled debut album is yet another striking contemporary afro funk release from the SOUNDWAY stables. Rampageous afro-funk intertwine with heady soukouss, incessant rhythms with guitar looping, alien cosmic sounds straddling a vintage organ topped off with relentless percussion - a prelude to a feverish trance. This band is a live rebirth of Ghana's music of the 70s.
ORQUESTA ESTELAR - A super versatile 30piece afro-latin big band.This band boasts a blistering hot 15 piece horn section and spectacular vocals; get ready for a full blown sweaty Havana club experience.Afro-Cuban dance music played with tremendous style and panache.
FAMILY ATLANTICA duo - An exclusive acoustic warm up set for the Afropalace live Sessions. JACK YGLESIAS(heliocentrics) on flute, congas and assorted percussion teams up with sensational Venezuelan lead vocalist and 'the high priestess' of the live music ceremony LUZMIRA ZERPA for a storming duo performance. Expect spellbinding singing and chants which reverb her Venezuelan roots, mesmerising.
Heavy afro-tropical vinyl only dj sets by Volta45, Chief Commander Yaaba & Oli Hurez.
