About this performance

On Friday we bring you a very special tribute to two legendary musicians - Manu Dibango & Tony Allen!

Kicking off with a 2 & half hour Tony Allen Tribute selected by the festival curators Lekan Babalola & Kate Luxmoore who delve into early memories of the inspiration they affectionately refer to as Uncle Tony, through to to the most recent collaboration with Lekan for Tony's last release Rejoice,

An insightful interview of amazing music & personal accounts about the huge influence Tony had on his own globe trotting career, so it should be a special few hours of great music & insightful recollections.

And we also welcome David & Paul Mortimer, who have an incredible vinyl collection & will be sharing a few records of the late great Manu Dibango as part of the first day of the festival

Proudly supported by
