Grupo Lokito fuses contemporary Congolese and Latin music creating a modern day cocktail of two of the great world musics.
Formed in 2006 by British Latin pianist Sara and Congolese singer Jose Hendrix Ndelo, Grupo Lokito’s musicians are a mix of Congolese, Latin and British artists who have chosen to make London their home.
Lokito’s energetic front-line of singers are true performers, and when the groove steps up a notch in the blistering salsa and Seben sections, their outlandish dancing has to be seen to be believed.
Lokito spent much of the summer of 2012 playing festivals and London Parks as part of the citywide celebration of the Olympics. In May 2011 Grupo Lokito completed a UK tour as part of the Making Tracks concert series, which followed on from a successful Arts Council funded 2010 tour.
Grupo Lokito have been included in several compilation CDs including: Latin Beat on Putumayo (Aug 30 2011), Urban Africa on Cavendish Music (2010) and “The Rough guide to African Street Party “ on the World Music Network (2008).
In May this year, founder member Jose Hendrix, won the Congolese version of the X Factor “ Vodacom Best of the Best”.
