Lieko Quintet is a Manchester-based group turning contemporary jazz on its head with melodic, groove-infused compositions. Treading a path somewhere between soul music and folk song, they use melody as a focal point for moving between riff-based interplay and free-form improvisation. When blended together with the rhythmic precision of old school funk and cathartic energy of Nigerian afrobeat, the result is a brain-melting concoction of new-world explorations.
If you’re not already dancing, they’ll pull the proverbial rug out from underneath your feet, and get you moving in places you never even knew existed.
