Lokkhi Terra Meets Dele Sosimi: Cubafrobeat
(GBR/​CUB/​NGA)

    Music & clubs Afro Jazz / Soul Latin
Saturday 25.5.2019 18:00 – 19:00 Savannah Stage, Kaisaniemi Park

Combining Cuban rumba, afrobeat and Bangladeshi Folk, Lokkhi Terra are teaming up with Nigerian-British Afrobeat veteran Dele Sosimi to make May in Helsinki feel a bit more like tropical Havana and Lagos. The separate Yoruba-language cultural traditions represented by the two London based groups meld together on the festival’s main stage into a unique, genre-breaking and rousing mixture known as Cubafrobeat. 

Nigerian British Dele Sosimi is also one of the two founders of the legendary group, Femi Kuti & the Positive Force.
