Kishon Khan’s Lokkhi Terra have over a number of years now been
quietly establishing themselves as one of London’s more unusual
heavyweight outfits, described as “Stunning Headliners… A majestic
multi-cultural blend of sounds… effortlessly builds bridges between
rolling Indian raga rhythms, Afro-Cuban grooves, Acid Jazz/funk
and free flowing improvisation" (Timeout London). Included
amongst the band members are London’s top Cuban musicians,
adding their infectious rich musical history to the city’s melting pot.
When the band wanted to explore Cuban links with another of their
favourite traditions, Afrobeat, who better to bring in then one of the
Afrobeat originators – maestro Dele Sosimi – “Sosimi creates some
of the most bewitching grooves in modern African music” E Jazz
News.
Bringing together two Yoruba speaking musics - with different
accents, from different sides of the Atlantic - Havana meets Lagos in
London – A Cuban-Afrobeat-Experience. CUBAFROBEAT.

Funkiwala Records presents the third in the series of “Lokkhi Terra meets”albums, with the London fusionistas creating another unique sound-clash, this time with ex-Fela Kuti keyboardist and legendary UK Afro-beat ambassador Dele Sosimi, and members of his critically acclaimed Afro-beat Orchestra.

This particular collaboration has been bubbling away for a few years now, teasing audience expectations with a handful of sold out shows each year in between both bands busy schedules. Featuring the two pianos of Kishon Khan and Dele Sosimi – Cuban percussionists/vocalists Geraldo De Armas (Yoruba Andabo), Oreste Noda (Ariwo), Javier Camilo (Ibrahim Ferrer) - a horn section led by Justin Thurgur (Bellowhead) featuring Yelfris Valdes (Sierra Maestra) and Graeme Flowers (Kyle Eastwood) to name a few – this is an Allstar cast.
