African Night Fever Christmas Party: Lakuta

“I really love that!” ~ Lauren Laverne, BBC 6 Music

A musical collective formed in Brighton that is a true global act. Founded by vocalist-percussionist Cicely Taylor and fronted by vocalist Siggi Mwasote, Lakuta’s members’ heritage includes Kenya, Tanzania, Ghana, Malaysia, Spain and the UK. The result is a highly danceable mix of Afrobeat, funk, Latino and tropical grooves, blending traditional instruments to create a hard-hitting sound.

Lakuta’s 2016 album Brothers and Sisters released on Tru-Thoughts received widespread acclaim and radio airplay. Now experience them performing live in this exclusive African Night Fever special.
