Zonk Disco 7th Anniversary
Please note: Info provided by the Event Organiser
It is with great pleasure that we return to celebrate this joyous occasion with an extremely special guest, so influential to our movement.
On Friday, August 2nd, we welcome the living legend, Wally Badarou to perform live at The Bussey Building.
Wally will perform a rare solo 60 minute live set running through his classics and new work.
With a cult following for his own productions that remains strong today, the list of musicians he's also worked and recorded with reads as a who's who of the biggest musicians of the 1980s. From Fela Kuti, to Grace Jones, Sly & Robbie, Gwen Guthrie, Herbie Hancock, Talking Heads & Mick Jagger to name a few.
For fans, and newcomers alike this will no doubt this will be a gig to remember.
Supporting Wally will be Dele Sosimi & Medlar performing their new collaborative live project.
Dele having started out playing keys for Fela Kuti's Egypt 80 remains one of the most important musicians in the international afrobeat community today.
We're also super pleased to welcome back Medlar, a regular guest at Zonk from the beginning.
Dancefloor dyanmics continue through the night with DJ's El & Del, Svelte and the Zonk allstars.
10pm - 5am
Please bring ID, and be respectful to people.
