The Sheffield culture guide written by in-the-know locals

Textured, melodic music that takes you on a journey.

Music and Love Band plays high energy kwela music inspired by the townships of Zimbabwe. They play high tempo songs with strong melodies and drum rhythms that summon the audience to dance. Recent performances include Leeds International Festival; World on our Doorstep; SO Africa and FreeDome Festival. African and western instruments fuse together to create interesting, textured music, drawing influences from southern and western Africa and Europe – with songs that tell stories and take you on journeys.

For Migration Matters in lockdown they have a selection of more soulful songs, featuring kora.
