LEAFZANG is an acoustic ‘alt-trad’ outfit that weaves threads from jazz and world music into re-imagined Irish traditional and folk songs. Join them to wish the best to their bassist, Barry Donohue, as he leaves Dublin for one year.
Support on the night comes from MANDEN EXPRESS, a relatively new but awesome Dublin group:
Manden Express is an international group of Artists fusing traditional and contemporary styles of West African music from the Mande Empire of what is now known as Mali. Inspired by village, Wassalou (Oumou Sangare) styles and the explosion of new musical influences that merged with African music in the 1960′s it blends Kamele n’goni harp, djembe, and African bass drums (dunun) with Electric bass and guitar to produce stomping grooves and hypnotic time patterns.
The band have made recent appearances at Love live music 2013, Body and Soul Festival and the Drogheda Samba Festival.
