KOG & The Zongo Brigade, led by singer/MC/musician Kweku Of Ghana (KOG), have been making great music now for 7 years and are at the forefront of the UK “Afro-Fusion” scene alongside bands like Nubiyan Twist, Onipa, London Afrobeat Collective. Mansion Of Snakes and Afriquoi. With longtime band member MC/rapper Franz Von alongside Kweku, plus an all-star band featuring musicians from Leeds bands Tetes De Pois/Mansion Of Snakes/Slow Lorris, they fuse traditional Ghanaian music and instruments with Afro-dancehall, electronica, funk and hip-hop.
With appearances across the UK and Europe including WOMAD Festival, Glastonbury Festival, Edinburgh Jazz Festival, Reading/Leeds Festival and Millau Jazz Festival France, they launched their debut LP “WAHALA-WAHALA (Joy From The Struggle)” on Heavenly Sweetness Records in 2019 and hit the mainland European gig/festival circuit hard. Great to have them back in Leeds after a year away. Come and get some Ghana vibes/Afro-fusion from the UK’s original masters.
KOG & The Zongo Brigade have a very special guest artist appearing with them. Ghanaian afropop/afrobeats star Wiyaala aka “The Young Lioness of Afric”, is joining the, onstage for some songs. She is one of the biggest Ghanaian music artists around right now and when in Europe, she guests with KOG and the crew. Do not miss this chance to see them together.
