Agbeko Short Info

AGEBKO are an 11-piece musical juggernaut hailing from Manchester.

Drawing their inspiration and energy from the golden age of 1970s' Nigerian, Ghanaian and Ethiopian dance-floors, AGBEKO (formerly Kalakuta) delivers a high-octane, spectacular and invariably sweaty live show. Expect punchy horns, choppy guitars and wailing organs, all underpinned by a powerful groove, infectious enthusiasm and a healthy dose of sub-standard dancing.

With a wealth of powerful sing-along originals and unique arrangements of afrobeat and ethiojazz rarities (with the odd stalwart classic thrown in for good measure), AGBEKO are quickly gathering a reputation as a live tour-de-force comprising the finest young musical talent in Manchester.
