African Night Fever Presents – Christmas Party!: Djouna Mumbafu, Orchestra Big One
"African Night Fever bring the party vibes of tropical Kinshasa with Djouna Mumbafu and Orchestra Big One. A nine-piece band with dancers of African soukous and rumba.
Djouna Mumbafu started his career as a dancer in one of the most prominent bands of Kinshasa – Empire Bakuba. He later rose to become one of the most influential members of the late Pépé Kallé’s band before pursuing his own solo career. His first album Tonnerre de Brest, released in 2004, was a huge hit earning him a nomination at the KORA Awards.
Djouna has since gone on to revolutionise soukous and rumba with his own style of mesmerising guitar riffs and dance moves, earning him the title “atalaku” – a key and enlivening figure in Congolese music.
Add to this African Night Fever DJs and delicious Afro-Caribbean food on sale, and you have a joyous evening of tropical fun and entertainment. Bring your best dancing shoes and join the festive celebrations, African style!
Limited seating. £15 advance, £17.50 on the door."
