Date: Thu 09.12 Time: 21:30
Tonight an exclusive NL show!
Etuk Ubong & The Etuk Philosophy | Salón Sonoro
Hailed by none other than Seun Kuti as “one of the best things to come out of Lagos”, Nigerian trumpeter, composer and bandleader Etuk Ubong has developed an original style he calls “Earth Music”.
Weaving together a unique combination of not only afrobeat, highlife and jazz, but also the ritualistic drumming of Ekombi, the result is urgent and highly energetic, yet spiritual; his compositions reflecting his heritage and life philosophy of goodwill, peace and love for humanity. Ubong’s music is so vibrant and propulsive that one can easily make comparisons with leading lights of the UK scene, such as the Shabaka Hutchings-led Sons of Kemet, but at the same time it is distinctly Nigerian.
Etuk Ubong is also the owner of the fast growing heart of Lagos night club know as the the TRUTH, currently the most vibrant since the demise of the original Fela Kuti’s Shrine.

From September onwards, we want to open our doors for more people. But that also means that we have to ensure that everyone is staying safe: that’s why we will ask you at the entrance to show us a proof of being vaccinated or having done a negative test — in short, a QR code from the Coronacheck app.
We explain how to get a QR code and gain access to our events here: https://mezrab.nl/covid
