It’s a pleasure to welcome Soothsayers with their Nu Afrobeat and Dub back to Mambista at The Portico. It’s also timely as they’ll be playing hot on the heels of their brand new album “Soothsayers Meets Victor Rice And Friends”, Soothsayers’ project with New York-born, São Paulo-based producer-engineer-bassist, Victor Rice.

Soothsayers’ project with New York-born, São Paulo-based producer-engineer-bassist, Victor Rice. Soothsayers Meets Victor Rice & Friends features 11 instrumental recordings, lovingly assembled between London, São Paulo and Lisbon. 

Soothsayers’ influences are wide ranging and numerous but The Wailers, Fela, Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry, Skatalites, The Specials, Hugh Masekela , Roots Manuva, Massive Attack, King Tubby should not be ignored!! 

David ‘Ram Jam’ Rodigan – “Soothsayers have been providing us with their own unique brand of Reggae for many years now and this new instrumental album is a wonderful reflection of all the qualities which make this band’s work so important and enjoyable”

The soundtrack for The Latin, African and Jazz Dance Party will be provided by DJ Gerry Lyseight (ex-GLR/BBC London, Mambo Inn, Mango Landin’) spinning The Patented Mambista Mash Up!

Come and support live music at a great venue!
