From Senegal, to London and combined with a January UK tour ‘Diamonds, Gold & Mobile Phones’ is the second, self-produced album by Edd Bateman’s West African Love Affair. The new release is a true romance of cross continental culture and an expression of concern, told in songs of lust for natural resources and longing for a better life by its people. Now with a new lineup direct from West Africa, the story is underpinned by the live dynamite trio of Griot master Mosi Conde, Matar Ndiongue’s contemporary Casamance drum beat and Edd’s omniscient Afro bass. Expect to dance until you can’t stand.
Plus A Rohini DJ set ’til 2am.
Free entry before 7pm, £7 after 7pm, £5 in advance online.
