Artist bio

Live African dance music, fusing Congolese guitar + Gambian kora virtuosity with UK electronic sensibilities to create uplifting, dancefloor- friendly new music for a new generation of music fans.

Afriquoi are an underground sensation, bringing an uplifting fusion of African music and live electronics. The masterful 6-piece live show combines Gambian kora, Congolese guitar + Mandinka percussion styles with electronic music drawing on house, soca, hiphop, soul + jungle to create something entirely unique.

Based in London, Afriquoi is a UK afro supergroup, with every musician a band leader in their own right. With members ranging in age across 3 decades, originating from Africa, the Caribbean and the UK, Afriquoi brings together a vast depth of musical knowledge, culture and life experience.

Formed in 2011 out of London’s cultural melting pot, they have established a cult global fanbase, loved by fans both of African and electronic music.

The debut album ‘Kolaba’ was released on 11th September 2015 on Wormfood Records, followed up by ‘Abobo Nation Part 1‘ in May 2016 and ‘Starship/Can I Know You‘ (featuring acclaimed jazz saxophonist Shabaka Hutchings and Ghanaian drumming troupe Kakatsitsi) in May 2017.

No venue for old men

The venue is great in many ways, but not necessarily for someone age 50+, coming alone, having trusted the information about tickets, timing etc provided (or rather, mostly not provided) beforehand. Still, with a band like Afriquoi, nothing can really go wrong. Before the concert, I managed to get a great drink and find a relatively calm spot to read the paper while waiting (The pub across the street would have suited me better, but the no re-entry policy - unknown to me upon arrival - stopped that) and as soon as the band started - I was in seventh heaven for the rest of the night!
