Yankari headline the Friday night of this year’s Banjo & Bovril Festival.
Afrobeat, Funk, Ragge, Jazz.
Combining rhythms, melodies and lyrics from Yoruba and Igbo tribes Yankari have a sound reminiscent of the Afrobeat greats of the 60’s and 70’s.
Fuji, highlife and funk have been chewed up by the band to create a 21st century heavy groove.
This new sound has worldwide appeal and the Yankari fan base stretches from Ireland to Japan, Brazil to Spain, Nigeria to US.
