Big Screen Olympic Opening Ceremony
+ Djs playing a wide mix of music until late
Mo & The Motherfunkers
Grupo Lokito fuses contemporary Congolese and Latin music creating a modern day cocktail of two of the great world musics.
Formed in 2006 by British Latin pianist Sara McGuinness and Congolese singer Jose Hendrix Ndelo, Grupo Lokito’s musicians are a mix of Congolese, Latin and British artists who have chosen to make London their home.
Lokito’s energetic front-line of singers are true performers, and when the groove steps up a notch in the blistering salsa and seben sections, their outlandish dancing has to be seen to be believed! grupolokito.co.uk/Site/Videos.html
