An eco-friendly Afro-punk ensemble will play Bangor in May

A collective of eco-friendly futuristic Afro-punk artists will travel to Bangor in May as part of their first UK tour.

Fulu Miziki Kolektiv, will play at the city’s Neuadd Ogwen Stadium on Saturday May 24; the first of four UK dates which will also see them play in Leeds, Manchester and Bristol.

This multidisciplinary artist collective is based in the heart of Africa, in the Congolese capital Kinshasa.

For several years now, its members have spent much of their time conceptualizing an orchestra made entirely of objects found in the trash, constantly changing instruments, always in search of new sounds.

Founding member of Fulu Miziki Kolektiv, Old Pisko Crane, said: “As we used to sit in our homes in Kinshasa to create this music, these instruments and these costumes, we never thought it would be much appreciated.

“We are very happy to come to the UK for the first time – it’s a dream come true.”

Fulu Miziki Kolektiv’s unique sound supports a pan-African message of artistic liberation, peace and intense study of the ecological situation of the Democratic Republic of Congo and the entire planet.
