20:45 - 21:35 / Kolonel Djafaar live at Sonar XL
The basis of Kolonel Djafaar's sound is afrobeat and ethio-jazz, a unique fusion of traditional (West-)African rhythms, highlife and Afrofunk, Soul and Latin influences. The new 9-headed instrumental band creates from these rich ingredients a solid, atmospheric set floating on catchy dance music. The result leaves us no room for doubt: right away after their formation they won the ‘podiumprijs Jonge Wolven’ at the latest Gentse Feesten.
