Strange Cargo + Special Guests

Duration: 270 min

Strange Cargo is a new band fronted by singer/guitarist Laurence Corns who is equally at home in the 1930s swing style as he is playing Mbira music from Zimbabwe. Comprising Soothsayer horns Idris Raman and Robin Hopcraft, the innovative guitar sound of Rob Updegraff, Tom Mason and Saleem Raman on bass and drums respectively you can expect three part harmonies, grooves from all over the African continent, colourful horn arrangements, interlocking guitar patterns all wrapped up into songs that reflect the London background of all the musicians and make the sound ultimately quite English. You won't find another band that sounds like these guys, they are a truly Strange Cargo.

They are joined by a very special South London DJ guest. So special that he must remain a secret... but let's just call him Mr. Shong for now...

Love South London and love music? Then this is not a night you should miss!
