Benin City has arrived!

15 Apr

Apologies for the fashionably late arrival of this video post but hopefully absence has made your heart grow fonder. Click to relive our April 2nd show where Headline act Benin City managed to shake a few tail feathers (and heads at a slightly cringe worthy joke) .

Named after the largest city of the Edo state in Nigeria, Benin City are a London five-piece band fusing funk, hip-hop, Afrobeat, poetry and jazz into real feel good music.

Fronted by Joshua Idehen, Our April headliners have been described as a hybrid of ‘Outkast-meets-James Brown’.

Having already raked up accomplishments ranging from  appearances on BBC3′s “The Verb”,  BBC 6Music with Huey Morgan of Fun Loving Criminals and  Reuters’s Africa Daily programme, we’re feeling pretty go0d about having them headline.
