Dele Sosimi Quintet + Folu (DJ)

— The Old Market Assembly
One of the most important voices of Afrobeat
price: Headfirst Tickets


Dele Sosimi stands out as one of the most active musicians currently on the Afrobeat scene worldwide.

The music is a blend of complex but highly danceable funk grooves, Nigerian traditional music (including hi-life), African percussion, underpinning the jazz horns and solos from other instruments, as well as rhythmical singing.

Dele performs in one of three formats, each as compelling and funky as the others – a 15-piece Afrobeat Orchestra (featuring a 5-piece horn section and dancers), a 6–9 piece band (the most frequently used
format) or a trio/quartet (with bass and drums/percussion).

Sosimi is abetted by a group of musicians, most of whom have either played with him on previous records or have gigged with him on the live circuit. They all have chops to spare and the communication
between them is near telepathic.

Folu is a Nigerian Bristol-based DJ/Producer making eccentric, experimental tropical beats and afrobeats remixes.
