Grupo Lokito
Congolese Dance Vibes: Laid-back, stylish and charming!

NCEM, York
Saturday 14 May 7:30pm

Adults £13.00 | Concessions £11.00 | Students £5.00

Please note that tickets are no longer available to buy online, but can be bought on the door from 6.30pm on the night of the performance.

Grupo Lokito re-connects Latin and Congolese music in an exuberant explosion of sound. Cuban Rumba was a hot trend in West-African music in the 50s, and the group brings this style back to life with their own fresh take on it. Lokito features 'world-famous at home' guitarists Burkina Faso and Limousine, Kinshasa-based singer and dancer José Hendrix Ndelo and British salsa pianist Sara McGuinness, fusing their extensive experience in their respective musical traditions into an exciting style that can only be classified as 'Lokito'.
