Mambista @ The Portico

This Mambista brings Kongo Dia Ntotila to West Norwood. Their sound blends some of Africa’s finest dance music styles, drawing on "a breadth of African rhythmic and sonic traditions, with influences of Congolese rumba and the sunshine sounds of seben guitar, seamlessly fused with a neat dose of jazz. It is pure Afro-joy: dance-inducing beats, polyrhythmic guitars, grooving bass and soaring brass." 
Their latest offering is an extended EP of live tracks from a packed London show at The Jago, Dalston. Half A Live Set presents all new material that will feature on the next studio album. "Incredible musicianship.” Cerys Matthews, BBC 6 Music. "A euphoric joy" MOJO magazine". "An all around incredible album" Songlines magazine
The soundtrack for The Latin, African and Jazz Dance Party will be provided by DJ Gerry Lyseight (ex-GLR/BBC London, Mambo Inn, Mango Landin’) spinning The Patented Mambista Mash Up!
