Jupiter & Okwess and Les Triaboliques

About Jupiter & Okwess and Les Triaboliques

Born into one Africa’s richest musical cultures – home to some 450 different ethnic groups - the music of Congolese artist Jupiter Bokondji, together with his high-octane band Okwess, reaches beyond its popular conga and soukous sounds, mixing myriad lesser-known styles and rhythms with funk, soul and rock, while urgently addressing his homeland’s post-colonial travails. “Remoulds the template for forward-thinking, contemporary African music.” (Rhythm Passport)

Les Triaboliques are magpie-minded British string-pickers Lu Edmonds, Ben Mandelson and Justin Adams, whose collective CV includes The Damned, 3 Mustaphas 3, The Mekons, Jah Wobble and PiL, Their uniquely seasoned sound interweaves strands of Middle Eastern, African, east European, Celtic and Americana music.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Jupiter & Okwess and Les Triaboliques are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
