Bare Safe presents: Onipa, Hippo Sound System + more

Bare Safe welcomes explosive afro-futurist collective Onipa and their high-octane live show, fronted by irresistible singer & percussionist K.O.G, as the band tour new album, Off The Grid.

Off the Grid is a journey that joins the origin story of dance rhythms from Africa to electronic dance music of today’s clubs and festivals, connecting African folklore and storytelling to rap, jazz and hip hop. From Accra Market cassette tapes to London pirate radio stations, Malian blues to UK jazz – the twin creative forces behind Onipa — Tom Excell (Nubiyan Twist) and Kweku Sackey (K.O.G. & the Zongo Brigade) – together with Finn Booth on drums and Dwayne Kilvington (a.k.a. Wonky Logic) on synths, have built a life-affirming and highly original world of sound.

We are extremely proud to have our friends Hippo Sound System performing their new album, Origins. Lead by DJ Hiphoppapotamus, they explore new fusions of world music with sound system culture with a particular love of Afro-Latin percussive rhythms and heavy bass music such as Jungle, House, Dub and D&B!

Regulars on the festival circuit across the UK since 2018 they have played most major festivals from Glastonbury to Boomtown. And they’re unique, explorative productions have been featured on BBC Radio 1, 1Xtra & Radio 6 by Jeremiah Asiamiah, Craig Charles and Don Letts!

So come with them on their psychedelic journey into the jungle, complete with live percussion, brass, vocals and big bad bass lines!
