NUMBI live shows are a series of cross-cultural events from the Diaspora. The programme aims to bring a visible Diaspora presence into London's landscape through collaborations and cultural dialogue.
A NIGHT OF AFROPUNK!
Many things make NUMBI an extraordinary, transformative night out. The funky music: the sexy, vivacious dancing: the stunning performers culled from Funk Town, a place where spoken word, sinuous grooves and straight badassery collide to create an irresistible mix. The next NUMBI is no different.
This time we're celebrating Afropunk and giving you a chance to truly rock out and express yourself on the dance floor. We've got the sultry sounds of chanteuse, Miryam Solomon. We've got the vibrant, shake-your-tail feather rhythms of Bronzehead, the band that puts the funk in punk!
We've got the linguistic sexiness of writer and artist, Diriye Osman, who will be hosting the evening. The incredible Zena Edwards, Malaika Booker, Elmi Ali our poets for the night tasked with bring you the word complete with mohawks. We've got the ultra-fabulous choreographer and dancer, Funmi Adewole doing her thing with the often imitated, never duplicated DJ Bradley Zero. Our special guest Dj Zhao Tasket to take you to the Afropunk 2light.
And to kick it all off the Numbi Film Corner is Back with a super special screening of Documentary Film PUNK IN AFRICA directed by Keith Jones and Deon Maas.
