Join us for a special evening of raw and hypnotic Sudanese sounds with The Scorpios.
Hailing from Central Sudan and now based in London after fleeing the fundamentalist takeover in that region, The Scorpios are a band that melds Arabic rhythms and guitar chops (and a kind of swooning cyclical ecstasy) with a raw Eastern funk feel, properly dismantling cultural barriers in pursuit of a unifying rhythmic bliss. Heavy bass, synths, horns and percussions drive through traditional Sudanese forms to create a sound that owes as much to Detroit as it do to Khartoum.
Part of London African Music Festival.
