Details

A wonderful group of star musicians and singers from Africa, India, the Middle East, South America and Europe, bound together on a mission to share their sweeping, divine, borderless music.

2021 sees Rafiki Jazz capture the moment where culture, faith, sound and spirit collide as they release their 5th album Nduggu: Dust (KoniCD012) featuring 8 powerful new internationalist songs of enlightenment and change that cherish the human spirit, its joy and its fragility.

Onstage UK-wide and internationally since 2007, here are the voices and stories of inspirational Sufi soul singer Sarah Yaseen, griot singer and kora player Kadialy Kouyate and Egyptian master-musician Mina Salama, soaring above the band’s thrilling cross-continental instrumental mixes.

Rafiki Jazz are renowned for their glittering soundscapes where West African kora meets Brazilian berimbau, Arabic oud duels with Indian violin, bansuri and tabla, and at the core, their compelling grooves of hi-life guitar, Caribbean steelpan and deep electric bass. Live shows will migrate you to distant lands and bring you close to our urban roots in a musical zone full of possibility and promise. #Rafikian songs are powerful and absorbing, drawing on global folk music’s archives: they touch down in trance and devotion, shake us up with new languages, and offer sound advice, old news and good news in their social commentaries and heritage tales.

This event is part of Intercultured Festival.
