It felt so autumnal today as I left the house, I felt a little down in the mouth in all honesty. That was it? That was summer? Even by UK standards that sucked. But I shouldn’t have been so affected – swiftly to my rescue came this track ‘Kadaushe’ from Africa Dance outfit Afriquoi.
Afriquoi are a London based 5-piece that fuse traditional Congolese dance with UK electronica. I hope to see them live soon as the footage below is incredible. The group have a broad international heritage from Africa, the Caribbean, and the UK, and instruments from the world over make up their live show including the kora.
‘Kudaushe’ is irresistibly uplifting, so if you’ve been feeling the encroaching autumn, hold on to a little bit of summer and dance to this.
