Concert - World Music - Lamine Sonko and African Intelligence
Lamine Sonko & The African Intelligence (West Africa) After bursting onto the Australian music scene back in 2014, Lamine Sonko & The African Intelligence, have become known for their crowd-stopping performances and big band sound of new wave future rhythms direct from West Africa. The band is fronted by the charismatic Lamine Sonko, one of Australia’s most accomplished African artists. Praised for his compelling melodies and distinct percussive blend of the traditional and contemporary, Lamine is modernising West African music while maintaining the essence of ancient sounds and stories. Through The African Intelligence, Lamine brings together the different styles of afro-beat, afro-classical soul, reggae and funk. This 10 piece ensemble has become firm favourites in festival line-ups, including their recent WOMADelaide appearance with reviews describing their show as 'brimming with optimism and conviction in a circus of song, dance and social comment'. Cost: $31.50 / $26.25 (CONC) inc b/fee from Doors: 6:30pm Show starts: 7:30pm Venue: Tank 5 - seated / standing Support: Djansa Food van onsite: Flavours of India Bar on site. Rating: PG

What we're about

Like to share a movie, concert, show or festival? Heard of an interesting exhibition and like to visit it with others? This is a group for people who enjoy the Arts, live theatre, art-house and other movies, cultural and community activities, and live music other than the loud pub scene, and who want to meet with other members to enjoy these events.

To contribute to the licence fee for the Meetup software and other running costs, we have a low annual membership fee of just $5, payable to join and then annually thereafter. Details of how to deposit or transfer this payment will be provided to you when you apply to join.

If you are not willing to contribute this meagre amount, please do not apply to join (unless you are disabled and living on the disability pension as your only means of support - in such cases please ask for a fee waiver).

Membership is about participation in and contributing to the group, to the extent you are able. It is not just a free events notice service. If you do not intend to come to events, do not ask to join. Members who are locally located and do not participate at least once every 3 months will be asked to reconsider their membership unless there are adverse circumstances preventing participation.

You can contact the organiser through the message function or on 0407 180 352.
