Strummerjam: Mankala, The Sambazinhas
Strummerjam is a night of music in memory of the late Clash frontman Joe Strummer. This years event has a carnival theme, and is headlined by festival favourites Mankala.
Support comes from carnival veterans Bristol samba, Itinerants, and Bristols leading Brazilian dance campany, the Sambazinhas.
All profits from the event are going to the Joe Strummer foundation and musicians against homelessness.
Mankala is a 5-piece multicultural band playing rhythmic and energetic original music with lots of African, Caribbean and Latin elements. The band brings together musicians from diverse places such as Martinica and Trinidad, Zambia, Canary Islands and England. With a fresh uplifting and rhythmic sound, inflected with a variety of eclectic styles such as zouk, calypso, soca, reggae, a touch of afro-beat and a hint of salsa, Mankala is definitively a live band that will get the party started. African grooves and Latin-funk add up to a night to remember.
