The Scorpios + The Flotsam Orchestra – Live!
March 13 @ 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm
The legendary Sudanese-London collective The Scorpios brings their electrifying Eastern funk & soul-infused Afrobeat to perform live at The Jago Sunday 13 March! Supported by the incredible global-roots ensemble The Flotsam Orchestra.
Hailing from Central Sudan and now based in London after fleeing the fundamentalist takeover in that region, the 10-piece psychedelic Afrobeat band, The Scorpios, meld Arabic rhythms and guitar with raw Eastern funk and Western jazz in a cyclical swooning ecstasy.
Dismantling cultural barriers in pursuit of a unifying rhythmic bliss, heavy bass, synths, horns, and percussions drive through traditional Sudanese forms to create a sound that owes as much to Detroit as it does to Khartoum.
