Live African dance music.
Featuring a diverse array of hyper-talented musicians from Congo, Gambia, Bostswana and the UK, Afriquoi combine live instruments, electronics and vocal effects to create live African dance music.
Drawing on fresh UK sounds (house, UK funky, dubstep, glitch) alongside traditional African melody and harmony, and a healthy smattering of raggy dancehall vocals, Afriquoi create an atmosphere and a sound world that is all their own.
They are working hard in the studio with a wide range of musicians including, Warrior Queen, Serocee and Badness, and hugely respected live musicians and bandleaders Kudaushe Matimba (Zimbabwe), Seddik Zebiri (Algeria) and Jallykeba Susso (Gambia).
Here we've uploaded some mixes with some of the roots of our sounds....
