Get ready for an epic night of mind-blowing beats and infectious energy as Ushti Baba and DJ Jon Bongly take over The Magic Garden.
Riotous folk fusing hypnotic pan-European melodies with modern dance rhythms. Heavy beatbox roots, wild fiddle-driven fervour, an energetic thrill-filled musical journey from familiar lands to the beyond and back. Ushti Baba pay warm tribute to their trad folk roots whilst delivering a fierce fresh perspective that captivates crowds.
The Bristol-based 7-piece has been tearing up venues and festivals at home and abroad since 2013, with countless headline and prominent slots across the UK and Europe. In 2019 they enjoyed their first primetime radio play on BBC 6 Music.
Their last EP ‘a class issue’ contained five unique tracks of undeniable acoustic rave featuring ghost ships, ancient cosmology and forgotten popes; an exploration of cultural identity and cross-boundary connections with influences from klezmer to sea shanties to slip jigs and beyond. Youth lends his magic with a dub mix of original Morris-inspired Industry.
