JUSTIN THURGUR’S AFRO JAZZ PROJECT Featuring DELE SOSIMI (LIVE) - Band on stage around 2pm, performing 2 live sets.

JUSTIN THURGUR

Justin Thurgur has been at the heart of the UK’s World Music scene for over twenty years, primarily through his collaborations with the Afrobeat maestro Dele Sosimi and with the pianist Kishon Khan. He has worked with the likes of Cuban giants Giraldo Piloto, Changuito and Julito Padron, with Nigerian drum legend Tony Allen, with Damon Albarn’s Africa Express project, which included Cheick-Tidiane Seck and Fatoumata Diawara, with Tony Kofi, Bukky Leo and The Selecter. He is perhaps most known as the trombonist from the multi-award winning ‘folk’ group Bellowhead. Their split in 2016 led to him forming his own band and releasing his debut album as a bandleader ‘No Confusion’. This album saw him returning to his roots, a deep passion for Jazz, but with heavy influences from the international music community he’s been immersed in since the mid-90’s.

DELE SOSIMI

Dele Sosimi stands out as one of the most active musicians currently on the Afrobeat scene worldwide.

Dele’s career began when he joined Fela’s Anikulapo-Kuti’s Egypt 80, where he played keyboards for 7 years (1979-1986). Fela Anikulapo-Kuti was the founder of the style of music known as Afrobeat. The music is a blend of complex but highly danceable funk grooves, Nigerian traditional music (including hi-life), African percussion, underpinning the jazz horns and solos from other instruments, as well as rhythmical singing. Dele was the rhythm keyboard player for Fela Anikulapo Kuti’s Egypt 80 and worked and toured extensively with Fela around the world…
