Join Lagos Roots and Orchestra GOLD for a very special voyage through time and space to the funky, analog, psychedelic vibes of 60’s era West Africa!
Orchestra GOLD: Led by the talented and ferocious Mariam Diakite from Bamako, Orchestra Gold (OG) is razor focused on playing, promoting, and preserving OldStyle (pre-digital age) music from Mali, West Africa. OG the celebrated Orchestra music of Mali’s “Golden” post-independence era.
LAGOS ROOTS: 11-piece afrobeat ensemble that brings it back to the root: straight to 1970’s West Africa. Led by Geoffrey Omadhebo (Sonny Okosuns, OJ Ekemode), LAGOS ROOTS is steeped in unfiltered, deeply-grooved and intense Nigerian Afrobeat – horn-blasted tribal funk rhythms that keep you moving (and sweating) to the music of the Kalakuta Republic.
