Yusupha Ngum & Jollof Vibes

Born into the traditional griot (culture-sharing) lineage of Senegambia, Yusupha’s artistic expertise is embedded in the wisdom of ceremony and storytelling, for the passage of rites, human strength and community connection.
Joined by Melbourne's very own Luke Koszanski on Guitar.

Tumbao Social

On an island continent tens of thousands of miles from the music’s birthplace; Melbourne-based Salsa & Latin Jazz orchestra TUMBAO SOCIAL, a robust charismatic 11-piece ensemble with an atypical horn lineup alongside the classic salsa rhythm section was conceived with several ambitious goals in mind. To create world-class music, to pay homage to the elegant latin dance & salsa romantica orchestras of the 80’s and 90’s, and to bestow swingin’ rhythmic bliss upon the dancing public.
