Global Rhythms afrobeat meets house

Other | Thursday 25th February 2016 | Christina

Global Rhythms will be taking over Brixton this Easter Sunday 27th March for the afrobeat meets house party’s first ever day & night event. 

The daytime event sees Global Rhythms hosting POP Box Brixton, alongside a plethora of pop-up cocktail bars and food vendors, where al fresco dancing will continue until dusk, when the whole shebang moves over to Electric Brixton for a unique live music and DJ party. 

Boiler Room sensation, Romare, returns to perform at Global Rhythms after he played at their first gig in January, and he will be joined on stage by the amazing Dele Sosimi Afrobeat Orchestra. Dele is well known for having played alongside Fela Kuti as part of the great man's Egypt 80 band. Dele’s orchestra presents the funkiest rhythm guitars, fiery percussion, call and response vocals, and blazing horns - faithful to the original blueprint but also clearly bearing Dele's own DNA. 

As well as two high-calibre live acts, Berlin's Session Victim will also be performing. Their live set is widely renowned for being one of the best on the block, fusing house, jazz and funk into one almighty groove blend. DJ support comes from top selectors Crazy P, Bradley Zero, YAM Records, Container Records, and First World Records alongside Global Rhythms residents Elwood, and Sam & Toby.
