We’re upping the ante and kicking off Autumn with a big old party across two venues – La Belle and Mash House – featuring a line-up of hand-picked guests from the extended Samedia family covering a feast of afro-centric electronic musical styles with DJs, live acts and plenty tropical vibrations.
FIESTA DO SAMEDIA is a one-of-a-kind celebration of new music that reflects our changing, increasingly connected world. It is music from the worldwide ghetto that is slowly finding its way into the mainstream consciousness through the movement of people and the wonders of broadband internet.

SELECTED ARTIST BIOS
Formed in 2011 out of London’s cultural melting pot, Afriquoi have established a cult following for their refined fusion of African rhythms, garage, house and soul. Their afro house classic ‘Kudaushe’ has become an established favourite in clubs all over the world, and they have toured all over Europe to huge acclaim.
Mina is an artist whose reputation has steadily amplified over the years thanks to two acclaimed EPs for Enchufada and remixes for Mixpak, NLV Records & Man Recordings. Influenced by her love of afrobeats, dancehall and UK funky, Mina’s vibrant and melodic tracks fuse together all kinds of syncopated rhythms from around the world. Outside of the UK Mina has collaborated with vocalists and producers from Peru, Sierra Leone and Ghana, where she also ran a music production workshop for women. A true artist of our times, and banging DJ to boot!
Meaning ‘human’ in Akan, the ancient language of the Ashanti people of Ghana. It’s a message of connection through collaboration: from Ghana to London, our ancestors to our children, Onipa brings energy, groove, electronics, afrofuturism, dance and fire! Born out of deep collaboration between long time friends KOG (Kweku of Ghana of KOG and the Zongo Brigade) and Tom Excell (Nubiyan Twist), Onipa brings a fresh, raw, fiercely energetic new sound, fusing electronics and deep afro grooves. Think Konono no.1 meets Shangaan Electro, Songhoy Blues and Débruit.
SAMSON SOUNDS (DJ)
A huge favourite on the Scottish festival circuit, SS fuse dub, rave and hi-life influences to great effect, whipping up crowds to a frenzy with their vibrant and vital stage presence and musical skill.
MAXIROOTS ft. TOM SPIRALS (LIVE)
Hailing from Argentina but based in Glasgow, Maxiroots is an original meeting of the Latin traditional cumbia sound with roots reggae and rub-a-dub, occasionally moving into jungle territory. Fast-rising dancehall MC Tom Spirals provides the lyrical glue.
