African Night Fever brings the total experience music and cultures of North Africa with a dance night featuring Gnawa Blues All-Stars lead by Simo Lagnawi, twice a nominee for SONGLINES awards for 2014 BEST NEWCOMER, and BEST ARTIST. Simo will take the audience on a journey of traditional Moroccan trance music modernised with 21st century North African feel intertwined with absorbent London life. Gnawa Blues All-Stars are ambassadors of North African music and culture as they fuse the modern culture of North Africa with melodies and improvisations of the rest of the continent.

Last Summer Simo performed on many festival stages including Glastonbury and BBC Radio 3 at Latitude Festival and was a winner of one of the World Music Network battle of the bands competition. Come ready to feel the heat of the Sahara through music and dance with Rhythms from Africa with African Night Fever Djs in the mist.
