ABOUT THE EVENT

“A total stonking blinder” – All About Jazz

“A fusion lover’s dream” – Songlines Magazine

“This coming together feels particularly inspired” – Evening Standard

Kishon Khan’s LoKkhi TeRra have over a number of years established themselves as one of London’s more unusual heavyweight outfits, described as, “A majestic multi-cultural blend of sounds... effortlessly building bridges between rolling Indian raga rhythms, Afro-Cuban grooves, Acid Jazz/funk and free flowing improvisation." – Timeout

With 6 critically acclaimed albums to date, the band continue to thrill with their live performances. Included amongst the band members are London’s top Cuban musicians, adding their infectious rich musical history to the melting pot. When the band wanted to explore Afrobeat, who better to bring in then one of the Afrobeat originators –keyboardist Dele Sosimi. “Sosimi creates some of the most bewitching grooves in modern African music.” E Jazz News

From the melas of Bangladesh to the streets of Havana, via districts of Lagos and bustling London clubs, you can expect an exciting & inspirational night here in Watford. Can't wait!
