Brighton Dome is an arts charity made up of an historic events venue, a music education service and the biggest curated cross-arts festival in England.
Africa in the Lounge is back for a fourth series kicking off with Lakuta – a musical collective that formed in Brighton but which is a true global act. Founded by vocalist-percussionist Cicely Taylor and fronted by vocalist Siggi Mwasote, Lakuta’s member’s heritage includes Kenya, Tanzania, Ghana, Malaysia, Spain and the UK.
The result is a highly danceable mix of Afrobeat, funk, Latino and tropical grooves, blending traditional instruments to create a hard-hitting sound. Their 2016 album Brothers and Sistersreleased on Tru Thoughts received widespread acclaim and radio airplay.
Now experience them performing live in this exclusive live stream. Africa in the Lounge is the popular live stream concert series produced by African Night Fever & Yaram Arts, which brings the rhythms and melodies of Africa to audiences around the world.
Produced in partnership with Wild Stag Productions and Ooosh! Tours. Presented in partnership with Brighton Dome, Bristol Beacon and Brewery Arts Kendal. Supported by Arts Council England.
