Brudenell Social Club, Leeds
Saturday 28th March 2020, £8.50
KOG & The Zongo Brigade, led by singer/MC/musician Kweku Of Ghana (KOG), have been making great music now for 7 years and are at the forefront of the UK "Afro-Fusion" scene alongside bands like Nubiyan Twist, Onipa, London Afrobeat Collective. Mansion Of Snakes and Afriquoi. With longtime band member MC/rapper Franz Von alongside Kweku, plus an all-star band featuring musicians from Leeds bands Tetes De Pois/Mansion Of Snakes/Slow Lorris, they fuse traditional Ghanaian music and instruments with Afro-dancehall, electronica, funk and hip-hop.
With appearances across the UK and Europe including WOMAD Festival, Glastonbury Festival, Edinburgh Jazz Festival, Reading/Leeds Festival and Millau Jazz Festival France, they launched their debut LP "WAHALA-WAHALA (Joy From The Struggle)" on Heavenly Sweetness Records in 2019 and hit the mainland European gig/festival circuit hard. Great to have them back in Leeds after a year away. Come and get some Ghana vibes/Afro-fusion from the UK's original masters.
