Soul Rebels Christmas Special with Mansion of Snakes

14 DEC


Soul Rebels Sessions are the live jazz/soul/global beats gigs that have been running across Leeds since 2012. Showcasing the best of the sessions with a live set from 12 piece Leeds and London afrobeat/afrofunk band Mansion Of Snakes plus resident DJ Chris Welch.

Mansion Of Snakes are now two years old, have played across the UK at clubs and festivals. Much loved by Craig Charles, who features them at his monthly Manchester Funk & Soul Club as well as his BBC 6 Music radio show, they play heavy brass-ladened afrobeat, afrofunk and highlife that pays homage to the original masters like Fela Kuti, Tony Allen and Ebo Taylor.

Expect the full range of global beats/global soul to get your booty shaking.
