Zacapa presents Strange Cargo

Mon 29th May

Strange Cargo is a new band fronted by singer guitarist Laurence Corns who is equally at home in the 1930s swing style as he is playing Mbira music from Zimbabwe. Comprising Soothsayer horns Idris Raman and Robin Hopcraft, the innovative guitar sound of Rob Updegraff, Tom Mason and Saleem Raman on bass and drums respectively you can expect three part harmonies, grooves from all over the African continent, colorful horn arrangements, interlocking guitar patterns all wrapped up into songs that reflect the London background of all the musicians and make the sound ultimately really quite English. You won't find another band that sounds like these guys, they are a truly Strange Cargo.
