Under the leadership of the outrageously talented whirlwind of energy that is Kweku Sackey aka Ghanaian force of nature KOG, the 8-piece Zongo brigade deliver infectious, high-energy West African grooves, drawing on afrobeat, soul, funk, rock and reggae to create a totally original sound that leaves every crowd dripping with sweat and begging for more.
“startling, colourful, addictive” – Clash Music
“High energy West Africa-via-Sheffield grooves…be ready” – Mixmag
“Guaranteed hip-swivelling action” – Songlines
With KOG’s signature mix of songs, raps, operatic vocal effects and stage antics that would make Howling Wolf blush, backed up by hard-hitting patois raps from Jamaican Franz Von Song, and a dedicated band of serious musical badmen , the band have played some huge stages including Glastonbury West Holts, Reading and Leeds Festival, and clubs and venues across Europe.
