LAMINE SONKO & The AFRICAN INTELLIGENCE
A Percussive blend of jazz, funk and soul. Influenced by the infectious afro-beat music of West Africa, Lamine Sonko & The African Intelligence delivers powerful contemporary African Sound and Vibration to the Australian music scene.
African Intelligence is a 10 piece ensemble led by Lamine Sonko, sharing with you a musical report from the roots of afrobeat, reggae and salsa. From funky baselines and swift guitar riffs to the smooth groove of a message with meaning, here is a band that has it all!


CUMBIA MASSIVE SOUND SYSTEM
Inspired by the renowned Mexican sound system DJs who have been travelling across the Caribbean and Latin America for several decades to remix and edit classic tunes and become famous for their record collections, CUMBIA MASSIVE is doing the same for the digital generation and travelling further afield to also include the latest club hits from Africa, dubplates and live guests on percussion and the mic.

Exclusive for this Leaps & Bounds Festival, CUMBIA MASSIVE has invited Saca La Mois DJ!! (Cumbia Cosmonauts) to perform with Lamine Sonko and special suprise guests to keep the dancefloor shakin'!
