THE CONGO MEETS CUBA IN AN EXUBERANT EXPLOSION OF MUSIC
Grupo Lokito @grupolokito create a modern-day cocktail of two of the great world musics; Fusing blistering contemporary Congolese grooves with the fire of Cuban music. The results have audiences dancing in a haze of energy.
The glorious melodious vocals of Congolese front men Eugene Makuta and Iddo Donnatella blends with soaring guitars courtesy of Kenyan rising star Shama Shah, and the lilting keyboards of Latin piano player Sara. All of this sits on top of the rhythmic powerhouse team of Ernesto (drums), Emeris (congas) and Jimmy (bass)
Since their formation in 2006 the band have gone from strength to strength, completing several UK tours and building a solid following.
