Our first Thursday limited session, book your table*
Mixing their love for Zimbabwean music in through a western fusion to provide a fresh take on some of the world's most driving and rich music. Using an ear for detail to capture the wild sound and infectious dance riddim vibes of the Shona language, Kutumba will be taking to the stage to share their joyful high energy performance.
After missing out on a selection of great festival bookings around the country this summer Kutamba are very excited to perform their only 2020 show of the Autumn for the Trinity Center.
From the fiery rhythms of Thomas Mapfumo and the bound boys to the feminist soul clenching melodies of chiwoniso, right through to the warm sound and catchy ear worms of Oliver Mtukudzi, Kutamba play the sounds of Zimbabwe with their own touch.
True Strays make sounds for an America that didn’t quite exist. Influenced by the blues of Willie Dixon, the calls for justice of Bob Dylan and Neil Young, the dirt of QOTSA and the sonic brilliance of Alabama Shakes. Not just brainless rockers, the music is concerned with zero hour contracts, the destruction of the National Health Service, climate chaos and the mental health epidemic. True Strays are using the rights and wrongs of the past to paint a brighter hope filled future. For Joe and James, writing songs and creating a sound that is believable, real and authentic is at the heart of what they do. Their shows, always melting barriers between audience and band, end in a riotous crowd singing hoedown.
True Strays have been the soundtrack for late night lock ins, pool party break ins, festival headline mayhem, Sofar Sessions, caleidhs, crowd surfing and Extinction Rebellion occupations.
