Matuki are a 10 piece Afrobeat/Afro-funk band based in Bristol – a city renowned for its multi-cultural dance music. Their debut gig on Glastonbury’s esteemed Glade Stage in 2015 showed the true extent to their potential as Bristol’s newest and most exciting Afrobeat project. They went on to play Shambala the same year and Bristol’s Colston Hall as they honed their sound and live show, all the while gaining an enviable reputation as a live band.
Fusing traditional Afrobeat sounds with some heavy doses of contemporary urban funk, they immediately won audiences over with sizzling horns, tuff bass-lines, interlocking guitars & soaring vocals. Led by master drummer and lead vocalist, Abraham Ebou, they released their debut album, Injo. It has jazz & psychedelic influences too, resulting in mesmerising tunes with heavyweight horn lines.
To date they’ve had sold out shows in London, Bristol and Cardiff- where they supported the none other than Quantic Soul Orchestra. They returned to Glastonbury last year (their debut gig was on Glade stage the year before) as well as Kendal Calling, Greenman and Secret Garden Party.
