SAUTIKANO – THE LIVE SHOW
A musical fusion with a core of experienced performers from across the world comprising: Ivan Toolit – lead vocals (Uganda), Njega Sohna- African drums (The Gambia), Seikou Sussou – Master Kora Player (The Gambia), Ben Somers – Double Bass (UK) Liz Lenten – guitar and harmonies (UK).
Their first EP – ‘NERA’ (translation: Uncle) sang in Acholi and English, tells poignant stories of growing up with uncaring distant relatives and wishing you could have the love and security of Mum and Dad….
The songs express resilience, and the healing power of music….
‘….Their sound is original and energetic, mesmerising and hypnotic – bursting with traditional West and East African sounds with folky guitar and jazzy double bass, playing a key role in the overall uplifting vibe…..’ Scarlet Records LTD
