Janka Nabay and The Bubu Gang

1 Dec 2017
All ages
£10 / £7.50 Mono Bus available Local Links

Janka Nabay, the undisputed king of bubu - frantically-paced dance music with ancient, magical origins in Sierra Leone - makes his debut at Platform this December.

Accompanying Janka is The Bubu Gang - a posse of musical collaborators he hooked up with in the US to create a wild, high-octane juggernaut of call-and-response vocal interplay, juddering dancefloor rhythms, synths and guitars. Throw in a taste for tearaway improvisation and indulge in an absolute blast of a sound, that keeps it quick, loose and natural and runs on pure musical joy.

A bubbling Bubu cocktail with Nabay as mixologist, this thrillingly kinetic live show is a potent mind meld of off-kilter polyrhythmic folk tunes and high-octane psychedelia.
