Kalakuta Millionaires is an Afro-Funk-Latino outfit based in Brighton. Fusing tunes from the heart of 70's Nigeria to the carnivals of Cuba, the back streets of Brazil and beyond - expect blistering brass, stunning harmonies and an explosive rhythm section!
The group has already taken the UK festival scene by storm with their dirty mix of Fela Kuti-inspired brass lines, Latin percussion section, afro-psych organ and JB-style funk riffs.
Kalakuta Millionaires have appeared on 'Craig Charles' Funk and Soul Show' on BBC 6 Music and will be playing live from the BBC's Maida Vale studios on Mark Lamarr’s show 'God's Jukebox', on BBC Radio 2.
