AWALÉ // LIVE SENEGALESE SOUL
Sep
13
to Sep 14

AWALÉ // LIVE SENEGALESE SOUL

London-based band Awalé returns with a new sound, Senegalese soul!

Biram Seck’s soaring voice evokes messages of love and peace, underpinned by heavenly poly-rhythm groove explorations. Intense and spiritual Sabar Senegalese percussion and Afro-Latin drums conversations, weaving intricate guitar patterns and horn lines with catchy bass riffs. Like a spinning kaleidoscope of sounds, their tunes travel from afrobeat to soul, deep Afro-jazz to Latin. Awalé is on a mission to experience happiness together in these fractured times.

‘A truly magical and uplifting cross-cultural collaboration, bringing together Afro-latin, funk and soul elements with a Senegalese twist. The wonderful voice of Biram Seck and Thibaut Remy’s compositions make for an unmissable combo. Must See!’ - Tim Garcia (Jazz FM/Musica Macondo)

‘Most Impressive, echoes a lot of greats like Orchestra Baobab and Youssou N’Dour but with very much it’s own sound’ - Jamie Renton (DJ, fROOTS)

SEN3 LIVE AT GROW // NU-JAZZ & FUNK

SEN3 live at Grow Hackney

An exciting new genre-hopping guitar trio have emerged from London’s melting pot.The band create a compelling wide-screen soundworld that’s rich in melody and emotive harmonies, contemporary beat-culture and heavy riffs. Imagine a combo of Pink Floyd’s ethereal epic-ness, Jimi Hendrix’s psychedelic soul-funk, a touch of J-Dilla/Madlib beat conducting with a twist of Led Zepellin riffs and you’re half way there.

With credits as in-demand sidemen for David Gilmour, Jamie Woon, Jessie Ware, Khadi Tatham and PBUG, the band stretched out in early 2017, releasing their debut album The Drop to rave reviews and plenty of attention from Jazz FM, BBC Radio 6, Ronnie Scott’s, Jazzwise Magazine and Dublab. Their second studio album Volume II is out now and available on bandcamp and all streaming platforms.

SEN3 are ones to watch
“Love this new Project”
- Chris Philips, Jazz FM

“SEN3 are in possession of a seriously unique and energetic sound - loving theses guys."
-Tony Minvielle, Jazz FM

“I fully support this exciting new project and these guys will blow up for sure!” -Rebecca Vasmant - BBC Radio Scotland

“SEN3 are killing it, as a live band they are a force to be reckoned with". -Nick Lewis, Ronnie Scott's

Hoxton FM invite Lee Rands, Arnau Tango (The Smoking Room / Hq Barcelona) , Joaquin C (Groundid Music). Roomwork and Dan Formless to join us on the banks of the Regents canal from 1pm on Sunday 11th August! Expect great music, food, drinks and good vibes with new and old friends!

Lee Rands needs no introduction if you've been out partying in London or Liverpool over the last ten years. Playing for FUSE and holding down a residency with MUMU shows what a respected selector this guy is.

Arnau Tango joins us from The Smoking Room and highly respected Hq Barcelona to bring exactly the vibes we are looking for on a hot summers day!

Joaquin C. hails from Peru and has released on numerous labels including Groundid Music, Inwave, Insound, Merger music and Conceptual. He is only visiting London for a few weeks so we were delighted to be able to invite him to play!

Roomwork is something of an enigmatic figure who has been sending us some really tasty productions recently. Trust us, his music will do the talking!

On resident duties as always, Hoxton FM founder Dan Formless returns to London after recent Forward Movement trips filming, digging and playing in Tokyo, Kyoto, Osaka, Amsterdam, Barcelona, Lisbon and Berlin. Curating these monthly summer parties at Grow, Hackney allows him to share some very inspiring sounds from both his collection and connections!
