JOE DRISCOLL & SEKOU KOUYATE

+ SPECIAL GUESTS

7:30PM-11PM : £10 ADV (18+)

The well-worn and often overblown expression “music is a common language” has never been more apropos in the case of Joe Driscoll & Sekou Kouyate. US-born, England-based Driscoll speaks no French and Kouyate, who hails from the West African country of Guinea, little English. When they were brought togethert at a festival in Marseille in 2010 and given a week to produce a concert - music was the only way they could communicate. 

Turns out they had a lot to 'talk' about, and their first meeting has sparked a collaboration that's led to the formation of a band, the recording of an album, and over 120 concert dates across Europe.

Driscoll contributes rapping, looping, and beatboxing and songwriting. Kouyate, already a phenomenon in African music circles, has blown minds and ears with his hypersonic performances with The Kora, bringing the exalted West African harp into the 21st Century with the use of distortion peddles and previously unimagined technical prowess. 

Together Driscoll and Kouyate blend hip-hop, spoken word, funk, and soulfully accessible rock with afrobeat, reggae, and irrepressible West African grooves.
