Chai Wallahs Present: Agbeko

— The Old Market Assembly
An afrobeat-inspired rock-funk-psych juggernaut!
price: Tickets Below

Information:

Agbeko were born out of admiration for the enduring music of 1970s West Africa and have spent the past three years honing a singular, contemporary sound built upon its teachings. An onslaught of horns, guitars, percussion and gutsy vocals, the eleven-strong outfit deliver powerful songs packed with riffs, groove and lyrical prowess to move gig-goers, festival throngs and afro-funk afficionados alike.

Their combined political awareness and uncompromising musical commitment enables the group of Manchester-based twenty-somethings to draw from Afrobeat, psychedelic rock, funk and raucous-leaning jazz without missing the vital nuance and defiant tone that gives each its clout and power to resonate. They view our times through the lens of Generation Z, the forty-eight and the ninety-nine percent, speaking out against irresponsible leadership and humanitarian crises through their music, while promoting fairness and acceptance — just as the musicians who inspire them have.
