Grupo Lokito

  • Flat Iron Square 68 Union Street London SE1 1TD UK (map)

Every Wednesday we present one heavyweight live act at Flat Iron Square - a meeting place for people, food and friends. 


Grupo Lokito fuse contemporary Congolese and Cuban music creating a modern day cocktail of two of the great world musics. Based in London, the band have taken the UK by storm, wowing festivals and the club circuit alike with their blistering grooves and outlandish dance moves.

The glorious melodious vocals of Congolese front men Eugene Makuta and Iddo Donnatella blends with soaring guitars courtesy of Congolese guitar hero Mbokalia, and the lilting keyboards of Sara. All of this sits on top of the rhythmic powerhouse team of Michel (drums), Emeris (Congas) and Elpidio (bass).

Winner: Tropical Act of the Year, UK Lukas Awards 2016

The band will play two sets between 7 and 9pm


Later Event: August 10
