10A Sessions with the Scorpios
This event is part of the Hello Again Hackney ~ A special series of performances to welcome Hackney residents back to SJQ.
This event is a collaboration between SJQ and The Majazz Project.
Hailing from Central Sudan and now based in London after fleeing the fundamentalist takeover in that region, the Scorpios are a septet that melds Arabic rhythms and guitar chops with a raw Eastern funk feel, properly 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.
The Scorpios will be joined by The Momo Collective playing jazz, old school breakbeats, psych and latin.
