Matuki are a band really worth talking about! One of the most progressive UK Afro-funk bands, they take Afrobeat and Afro-groove into the 21st century and to a whole new level! An 11-piece based in Bristol, they fuse the best of Nigerian Afrobeat with full on JB style funk.
Funkshy have honed an eclectic, multi-layered sound that fuses Funk, Dub, World, Reggae, Soul. Chilled out soul with a funky skip, a peppering of blues, eastern and reggae influences creating a whole new kind of groovy rhythmic London funk.
The ‘live’ format is a 6 piece band, fronted by two vocalists and includes some of London’s finest musicians, led by drummer/producer Tansay Omar.
Based in London, Sacha Dieu has been djing professionally since the late 90s. Sacha plays many genres and styles (From 1920s Jazz to Rhythm and Blues to the latest remixes, obscurities from around the world to well known classics). Sacha adapts his sets for each new occasion. However, he is reputed for being one of the pioneers and specialists of Balkan Gypsy Music and Global Beats djing in the UK.
