The Zong Zing Allstars

London based Zong Zing All Stars are a 9 piece band playing
infectiously euphoric ‘Cavacha’ dance music from Central Africa.

Driving percussion forms an irresistible core rhythm combined with
vocal harmonies and intricate guitar work. They deliver a
joyful, uplifting and engaging performance combined with acrobatic
dancers who are sure to get any crowd moving!

Zong Zings music is steeped in folkloric heritage, combining ‘Cavacha’
dance rhythms with ‘Soukous’ from the Democratic Republic of Congo
and other root beats like ‘Mutuashi’, the raw origin of reggae music.

Bananas Ukulele Band

Walkabout, comic, musical, aesthetically pleasing and interactive act that’s a bit…well, bananas!

With a ukulele or two, this ripe ol’ cheeky twosome have a tip top repertoire of harmonised and improvised musical treats which blend together like a refreshing smoothie.

Throwing some moves and shapes, fruity puns and interactive fun – even if it’s from a distance.

Come Say ‘Yellow’ if you spot these promenading potassium performers!

 

 

Juke Boxes

Two beautiful 1950’s Jukeboxes sit side-by-side. Watch them spring
to life as two performers (hidden inside) re-create classic pop music
videos in a lip-syncing musical medley.

Using props, masks, puppets and a terrible selection of wigs, the
kitsch duo bring to life some of our favourite celebrity pop-stars from
past and present. The Beatles, Sinead O’Connor, Miley Cyrus, Stevie
Wonder and Adele all make cameos –and audiences are encouraged
to sing or dance along with the show.

Whatever your age, there’s a little something for everyone.

 

 

Mariachi Las Adelitas

The ‘Adelitas’ were Mexican women who took to arms in the Mexican
revolution to rebel against the many injustices of the time. The name
comes from one such woman, for whom a revolutionary famous
‘corrido’ was written, but has now come to symbolise all of these
fearless warrior women.

Formed in London in 2013 this unique band was born out of the desire
to shatter stereotypes within this traditionally male-dominated genre.
With band members originally from Mexico, Cuba, Colombia, Italy and
the U.K they are the only female Mariachi band in Europe. This is a
lively band in full costume, ready to create the rousing international
sounds of Mexico.
