Mokoomba

Thursday July 18

With recent performances at both WOMEX and on Later with Jools Holland, Mokoomba are fast becoming one of the biggest names in world music since the internationally renowned Bhundu Boys. Their electrifying blend of Afro-fusion and tantalizing traditional Tonga rhythms, coupled with an intense choreographed stage presence, encapsulates Latino, soukous and reggae influences with a deep-rooted, traditional African sensibility.The only Irish date on a tour that takes in the cream of summer festivals across Europe, Mokoomba’s Irish premiere in Donegal will be a world highlight of the Global Voices/ Songfest programme for this year’s Earagail Arts Festival.
