Supergombo - India Tour - Nov-Dec 2018

What happens when Africa collides with France in a recording studio?

You get SUPERGOMBO! 

Supergombo is an exciting new offshoot of the blend of cultures in France whose afrofunk sounds are a cross between Senegalese Mbalax, Congolese Soukouss and Funk. Their music is somewhere between Fela Kuti and Hugh Masekela – the music Maceo Parker would probably play if he knew the Mediterranean better. It’s not "world music," though, since all music is global these days. But Supergombo’s frenzied, uncontrolled rhythms come from Montreuil as well as Ouagadougou, with a stopover in la Guillotière – that lively Lyon neighborhood where the cultural mix also stands for an equal opportunity for all... to dance.

They are here to funk you up starting this Thursday with the beginning of their tour of India in Pune. 

They will be performing and giving masterclasses in six cities as they make India groove to their funky beats.
