Wom@tt presents Mama Africa: African Women in Concert

A host of wonderful UK based women celebrate International Women’s Month African women in music Style backed by Ray Carless and the inimitable Club Skaaville Lively Up crew:

An all too rare opportunity to enjoy world class UK based African female artists in full flow individually and together. A sonorous and joyful evening ramjammed with excellent music with Kora virtuoso MAYA SONA JOBARTEH (Gambia/UK) who enjoys a distinguished heritage - Toumani Diabate's cousin, VANYA REID & DELPHINA JAMES – Pan Supremos of Engine Room Collective , PAULINA ODURO – Mama Africa incarnate (Ghana), BONOLO (Humble) – 3 piece South African acapella and MEGUMI MESAKU (Ska Cubano)– Saxophonist extraordinaire + a feisty African mash up from DJ TJOMGZ, DJ Debbie and other guest female DJs.

MAYA SONA JOBARTEH celebrates her debut album Afro Acoustic Soul with its bittersweet beautifully crafted tales of live and love; THE ENGINE ROOM COLLECTIVE women play awesome energetic inspiring tenor pans, PAULINA ODURO (AKA Princess Adwoa) has the finest voice honed travelling worldwide with her own and other's bands, whilst BONOLO boast RUBY SERAME an original member of Shikisha and vocal harmonies to send shivers down the spine. Japanese MEGUMI MESAKU has to be seen to be believed – dubbed the world’s finest Ska saxophonist, she brings new verve and style to the African stage - baritone sax played behind your back anyone?

All alongside Ray Carless' (Formerly Jazz Warriors/Incognito) impossibly tight Club Skaaville band who Lively Up the African vibes in all styles. The women perform their own material and then everything explodes into a glorious jam. You'll find it hard to stay in your seats.

Wom @ tt in association with Limpopo Club, Club Skaaville and Outerglobe
