Details

Raw 70s Afro-funk!

Vaudou Game combine Voodoo cultural traditions with Afrobeat Rhythms and James Brown inspired Funk and Soul to create an original, dynamic, heavy groove that has been firing up audiences across Europe this year.

Singer and composer Peter Solo was born in Aného-Glidji, Togo and through his music he channels the ecstatic voodoo rituals, melodies and form of his upbringing with funky guitars, keyboards, bass, rhythms and counter rhythms, and a steaming pair of brass. Since the release of their debut album ‘Apiafo’ in 2014, Vaudou Game have never turned down the heat on over 130 stages across Europe, Africa, America and Asia and can count BBC Radio 6 Music’s Gilles Peterson as a fan.

Releasing their second album this autumn, ‘Kidayu’, the range of influences stretch across the big bands of Ethiopian dance music to the rumbling funk and soul of the Civil Rights era. In true afro-funk style, Vaudou Game are serving it live and raw, full of groove with Solo’s lyrics bouncing back and forth until the result is so pulsating and mesmeric you just have to move your feet.
