Mambista – November 2015




Our Mambista nights are a totally fabulous way to groove the night away – and we always have loads planned for the fourth Friday of the month in the warm embrace of the Portico Gallery.

We’re back on Fri 27th November and the evening kicks off again with Newton’s Salsa dance class at 7pm to loosen up those limbs and get boogie-ing!

At 8pm Gerry Lyseight picks up the mood with DJ duties on either side of live music.  In November we have Krar Collective from Ethiopia who perform a rootsy and contemporary take on traditional music from Ethiopia based on other-worldly modes and driven by hypnotic rhythms. The traditional acoustic krar lyre is associated with the azmari minstrel tradition; electrified, in the hands of Zeleke it becomes a gritty, ancient rock guitar – accompanied just by traditional kebero drums and fronted by stunning vocals.

“This London-based Ethiopian three-piece, centred on the traditional krar harp, were one of the grooviest and most hypnotic bands at Damon Albarn’s recent Africa Express bonanza.  Expect an ultra-repetitive funky dance marathon.” Time Out

19.00- midnight.  Salsa class 19.00-20.00hrs.  Mambista from 20.00 til midnight.
