We’re delighted to be hosting Afro-futurist sensations ONIPA, off the back of their fearless debut album We No Be Machine (Strut Records), which combines deep afro grooves, electronics and fierce energy in an effervescent celebration of cultural and musical encounters.
Show rescheduled several times – all original tickets from previous dates remain valid for the new date. Tickets on sale now.
ONIPA means ‘human’ in Akan, the ancient language of the Ashanti people of Ghana. It’s a message of connection through collaboration: from Ghana to London, our ancestors to our children, Onipa brings energy, groove, electronics, afrofuturism, dance and fire!
Born out of deep collaboration between long-time friends KOG (Kweku of Ghana of KOG and the Zongo Brigade) and Tom Excell (MD, guitarist and writer of acclaimed jazz/soul Afrobeat pioneers Nubiyan Twist), the four-piece live show features KOG on vocals, balafon and percussion, Tom Excell on guitar, percussion and electronics, Dwayne Kilvington (Wonky Logic) on synths and MPC and Finn Booth (Nubiyan Twist) on drums.
