The Vortex & Cafe OTO celebrate Evan Parker's 70th. 21, 23, 25 Oct at The Vortex
We welcome back legendary Nigerian drummer/percussionist Yomi Bashiru (The Minister of Rhythms) and his explosive 9-piece group Naija Grooves create infectious grooves from the fusion of Fuji, Juju and Afrobeat rhythms. Expect heavy duty rhythms from one of Africaâ€™s greatest drummers.
Yomi Bashiruâ€™s precise drumming has been used by the likes of King Wasiu Ayinde, Kollington Ayinla, Queen Salawa Abeni and The Yoruba Women’s Choir; we defy you to sit still.
