Connecting the musical dots between Havana, Cuba and Lagos, Nigeria, Cubafrobeat's shows are exhilarating, inclusive and heart-warming occasions.

Led by one of the most important Afrobeat musicians in the world today, Dele Sosimi, and backed up by members of London "fusionistas-par-excellence" Lokkhi Terra, the 11-piece band create a tight-knit sound that reflects their cross-Atlantic influences. Expect heavy percussion, infectious rhythms and a lot of energy.

Opening the evening, will be the mesmerising voice and harmonies of Senegalese singer-songwriter Kadialy Kouyate. As well as his virtuosity, Kadialy's music is characterised by the dream-like sound of the kora giving new life to the traditional music from his Mandinka background.

This coming together feels particularly inspired.
