Since his arrival in the UK in 2008, the charismatic creator and leader of Gnawa Blues All Stars, Simo, has performed at a host of festivals including Glastonbury, Secret Garden Party, Latitude and Boomtown.
Playing traditional Gnawa (sacred trance music from Morocco) and Gnawa fusion with his bands Electric Jalaba, Gnawa Griot, and Gnawa Blues Allstars, Simo continuously pushes new boundaries fusing Gnawa with music from countries such as Gambia, Burkina Faso, Senegal, Guinea, Mali, India, Japan, Venezuela and the Caribbean. Look out for special guest musicians playing with the band!

Big Ben Jorge play 1970s samba funk party music dressed in all sorts of bizarre clothes mainly found in Deptford market. They began life in a woodland party in England playing to naked revellers dancing around a bonfire. This is a brand spanking new band but you can have a sneaky peak at their music here -

Joplin Parnell spins a motley mix of rhythm & blues grooves and rollocking baselines… Brass band sounds and swampy soul from the deep south combined with hot swing rhythms, psychedelic Afrobeat, boogaloo and music from all four corners of the world, anything and everything so long as it’s got that funk to make you move your junk!
