Sounds from Sutukum-(formerly known as The Banilay Band)
An exciting new band that is the result of a mutual love of African Manding music.
Born out of a shared study trip to The Gambia in Dec 2017, they play traditional Mandinka songs with a modern groove.
Bringing together the sounds of the Kora (21 stringed harp) and Balafon (wooden xylaphone with calabash resonators), they weave together melodies and grooves that are at once soothing and uplifting, but guaranteed to get your feet moving.
Hailing from Eastern Stockport, Lazlo Baby bring you Balkan folksy ska with high octane exuberance. Whilst dabbling in the delights that klezmer, gypsy and trad Irish music have to offer, Lazlo Baby stitch together pounding melodies that'll clobber you with their enthusiastic brouhaha.
