Jazz Cafe welcomes explosive afro-futurist collective Onipa and their high-octane live show, fronted by irresistible singer & percussionist K.O.G, as the band tour new album ‘Off The Grid’.
‘Off the Grid’ is a journey that joins the origin story of dance rhythms from Africa to electronic dance music of today’s clubs and festivals, connecting African folklore and storytelling to rap, jazz and hip hop.
From Accra Market cassette tapes to London pirate radio stations, Malian blues to UK jazz – the twin creative forces behind Onipa — Tom Excell (Nubiyan Twist) and Kweku Sackey (K.O.G. & the Zongo Brigade) – together with Finn Booth on drums and Dwayne Kilvington (a.k.a. Wonky Logic) on synths, have built a life-affirming and highly original world of sound.
