“I really love that!” Lauren Laverne, BBC 6 Music

Africa in the Lounge is back for a fourth series kicking off with Lakuta - a musical collective

that formed in Brighton but which is a true global act.

Lakuta

Founded by vocalist-percussionist Cicely Taylor and fronted by vocalist Siggi Mwasote,

Lakuta’s members heritage includes Kenya, Tanzania, Ghana, Malaysia, Spain and the UK.

The result is a highly danceable mix of Afrobeat, funk, Latino and tropical grooves, blending

traditional instruments to create a hard-hitting sound.


Their 2016 album Brothers and Sisters released on Tru Thoughts received widespread

acclaim and radio airplay. Now experience them performing live in this exclusive livestream.

Fever & Yaram Arts, which brings the rhythms and melodies of Africa to audiences around

the world.
