Gig: Ata Kak at Shapes Hackney

 

Last night Ata Kak performed for the first time in 25 years. The Ghanian dance-rap enigma did a secret show that had the whole of Shapes in Hackney in awe at his energy - and he's not young! It was raw and frentic. There was a live band led by South African, Esa (London DJ / Producer / Partners with Auntie Flo) made up of a keyboards, bass, percussionist and singer...which all worked the intensity of Ata Kak. Well worth it. Thanks to Brian from AwesomeTapes for making this happen...check out a video of last night here.
