Woodburner bring three huge live acts to the Hootananny Brixton stage, with 11-piece afrobeat upstarts Agbeko, the Congolese bass and guitars of Kongo Dia Ntotila, plus slow-motion dub explosion KOSMO SOUND.


Drawing their inspiration and energy from the golden age of 1970s' Nigerian, Ghanaian and Ethiopian dancefloors, AGBEKO command a wealth of powerful sing-along originals and unique arrangements of afrobeat and ethiojazz rarities. Expect punchy horns, choppy guitars and wailing organs, all underpinned by a powerful groove, infectious enthusiasm and a healthy dose of sub-standard dancing.

Since their formation in 2015, AGBEKO have enjoyed enthusiastically received performances at festivals including Secret Garden Party, Green Man, Kendal Calling, Tramlines and at the Manchester Jazz Festival. Airplay on US online radio shows followed, along with plans next summer for their first foray onto mainland Europe. They recently celebrated their first release at Archspace in Hoxton.


Kongo Dia Ntotila play a fusion of African roots-inspired beats and bass grooves with jazz detours on a journey through the musical motherland.

Composed of bass, guitar, drums and a small but mighty brass section, the group brings entrancing synergy to a fresh fusion sound that draws on jazz, blues, reggae and Latin vibes, over a solid foundation of authentic African rhythms and styles you can't help but move to.

Kongo Dia Ntotila has had a great response to their live line up, and are putting that magic into a studio record. Come hear tunes from the epic forthcoming album!

«Wherever they go they bring a raucously joyful party with them.»
Max Reinhardt, BBC Introducing Mixtape 22/8/16


KOSMO SOUND is a hulking instrumental dub project of Mattias Geernaert (bass) and Marius Couvreur (drums), who have enlisted the help of four sound magicians to complete their orchestra. Edmund Lauret and Cyriel Vandenabeele on guitars, Ambroos De Schepper on saxes and flute and Bos Debusscher on piano.

It's a slow motion dub explosion.
