Press Release – KONKOMA

KONKOMA (UK tour) – Signed to SOUNDWAY RECORDS; purveyors of the finest
West African Afro Sounds – KONKOMA’s self-titled debut album is yet another
striking contemporary afro funk release from the SOUNDWAY stables. Rampageous
afro-funk intertwine with heady soukouss, incessant rhythms with guitars looping,
alien cosmic sounds straddling a vintage organ topped off with relentless percussion
– a prelude to a feverish trance. This band is a live rebirth of Ghana’s music of the
70s. KonKoma – Album Teaser.

ORQUESTA ESTELAR – A super versatile 30 piece afro-latin big band.This band
boasts a blistering hot 15 piece horn section and spectacular vocals; get ready for a
full blown sweaty Havana club experience. Afro-Cuban dance music played with
tremendous style and panache.

FAMILY ATLANTICA duo – An exclusive acoustic warm up set for the Afro Palace
live Sessions. JACK YGLESIAS (Heliocentrics) on flute, congas and assorted
percussion teams up with sensational Venezuelan lead vocalist and ‘the high
priestess’ of the live music ceremony LUZMIRA ZERPA for a storming duo
performance. Expect spellbinding singing and chants which reverb her Venezuelan
roots, mesmerising.
