Live African dance music, fusing Congolese guitar + Gambian kora virtuosity with UK electronic sensibilities to create captivating, beautiful, dancefloor - friendly new music for a new generation of world music fans with one foot in the clubs.
Afriquoi are an underground sensation, bringing an uplifting fusion of African music and live electronics. The masterful 5-piece live show combines Gambian kora, Congolese guitar + Mandinka percussion styles with electronic music drawing on house, soca, hiphop, soul + jungle to create something entirely unique.
Based in London, Afriquoi is a UK afro supergroup, with every musician a band leader in their own right. With members ranging in age across 3 decades, originating from Africa, the Carribean and the UK, Afriquoi is true fusion music in the best sense of the word, bringing together a vast depth of musical knowledge, culture and life experience.
Despite no official releases, their afro house classic ‘Kudaushe’ has become an established favourite in clubs all over the world, and they have gained a cult global fanbase, with huge crowds singing along to their songs on major stages at Glastonbury, Boomtown, Fusion, Shambala, Bestival, Secret Garden Party and the London 2012 Olympics.
So, it's with great pleasure that we welcome them to The HiFi Club's Saturday night Party Bugalu for a DJ set like no other!
