Biography

Under the leadership of the outrageously talented whirlwind of energy that is Kweku Sackey aka Ghanaian force of nature KOG, the 8-piece Zongo brigade deliver infectious, high-energy West African grooves, drawing on afrobeat, soul, funk, rock and reggae to create a totally original sound that leaves every crowd dripping with sweat and begging for more.

With KOG’s signature mix of songs, raps, operatic vocal effects and stage antics that would make Howling Wolf blush, backed up by hard-hitting patois raps from Jamaican Franz Von Song, and a dedicated band of serious musical badmen, the band have played some huge stages including Glastonbury West Holts, Reading and Leeds Festival, and clubs and venues across Europe.

 “startling, colorful, addictive” – Clash Music

“High energy West Africa-via-Sheffield grooves…be ready” – Mixmag

“Guaranteed hip-swivelling action” – Songlines
