23rd August – Land of the Giants

Returning to play in Kingskerswell after a jam-packed show that saw people dancing in the aisles and leaving the church with giant grins on their faces! 

Since 2009, Land of the Giants have been pulling crowds to tents to groove until they sweat with their foot-stomping beats and contagious enthusiasm. A brass section that will make you grin from ear to ear, heavy toe-tapping basslines and Andy Quick’s sensuous, soaring vocals will make you wonder why you’ve never danced your ass off to The Giants before.

At the end of 2015, the Plymouth-based boys brought a brand new, funk-inspired EP to the table in the name of “Surrender”. A collection of high-energy summer sounds, with just a lick of calypso, that absolutely demand to be blasted out those boomboxes at full volume.

The last three years have seen The Giants unrelentingly tour the length and breadth of the UK, spreading their fresh and accessible sounds to venues and festivals alike. From packed out stages at Glastonbury, Boomtown and Beautiful Days to rocking venues from Ireland to India; LOTG are well on their way to global domination.

Feel-good music; it’s accessible, it’s danceable, and it’s rhythmic.Pearshaped Magazine

14th September – Awalé: The Soul of Senegal

London-based band Awalé returns with a new sound, Senegalese soul. Biram Seck’s soaring voice evokes messages of love and peace, underpinned by heavenly poly-rhythm groove explorations. Intense and spiritual Sabar Senegalese percussion and Afro-Latin drums conversations, weaving intricate guitar patterns and horn lines with catchy bass riffs. Like a spinning kaleidoscope of sounds, their tunes travel from afrobeat to soul, deep Afro-jazz to Latin. Awalé is on a mission to experience happiness together in these fractured times.

‘A truly magical and uplifting cross-cultural collaboration, bringing together Afro-latin, funk and soul elements with a Senegalese twist. The wonderful voice of Biram Seck and Thibaut Remy’s compositions make for an unmissable combo. Must See!’ – Tim Garcia (Jazz FM/Musica Macondo)
‘Most Impressive, echoes a lot of greats like Orchestra Baobab and Youssou N’Dour but with very much it’s own sound’ – Jamie Renton ( fROOTS)
