London based Fiston Lusambo is a virtuoso guitarist, famous for his fluid style blending choppy rhythm playing with sinuous lead lines. He first came into the spotlight in Orchestra Virunga, the group formed around seminal Congolese artist Samba Mapangala.

He is bandleader of Zong Zing All Stars, leading exponents of 'cavacha' - the uplifting dance rhtyhm at the core of central African music, which gave rise to 'soukous' in Congo, 'makosa' in Cameroon, and 'coupez decallez' in Côte d'Ivoire.

Events with Piers

Crossing and blurring musical boundaries is an art form for Piers Faccini. Treading the frontiers which delineate one country from another, Faccini finds his inspiration in the cultural ambiguity of borderlands. If his songs were maps, they’d stretch from the English moors to the Saharan dunes via the plains of the Mediterranean.

Over seven acclaimed albums, Faccini has toured his music worldwide, recording and collaborating with numerous musicians and singers including Ballake Sissoko, Vincent Segal, Ben Harper, Rokia Traore, Patrick Watson and Ibrahim Maalouf amongst others.
