Matuki festival promo pictureMatuki is a EPIC 12 piece Afrobeat  behemoth with a hypnotic, forward thinking and relentlessly high energy take on style. Led by charismatic Gambian master drummer,  percussionist, arranger, band leader, singer and songwriter Ebou Sanyang.  Tuff bass-line and interlocking guitars. Their explosion of live shows has gained them an enviable reputation, leaving you gasping for more.  Matuki’s second album will delight purists and excite those who are unfamiliar with high energy Afrofunk/Afrobeat.

Matuki are clearly an accomplished ensemble underpinning the sound is a funky and relentless wah-wah guitar with a punching base leading the tight Rhythm section, saxophone and trumpet effortlessly punctuate” Songlines Magazine
