Preview: Habibi Funk and Flamingods at Jazz Cafe, Friday 9th March

This Friday at Jazz Cafe, there will sounds from a corner of the world that is rarely associated with jazz, but that’s something Habibi Funk and Flamingods are determined to change.

Habibi Funk is a DJ playing tunes of 1970s Arab bands flirting with rock & roll, jazz and funk. Flamingods, a 4-piece band, are doing a DJ set play an eclectic selection from every corner of the world that dares to engage in funky music.

Habibi Funk may just be a DJ but his music means a lot to Arabs and world music fans as he describes his music in the following “The songs we chose were created in places quite far from another and under very different circumstances. Some were written and recorded during war times, others in exile. Despite the differences we think there is a musical connection between them“.

Across the evening you’ll hear everything from Moroccan rock bands to Cambodian jazz. This event is guaranteed to be exciting and different from your usual Friday night out. Not to be missed.
