New Year’s Eve at Cafe OTO

Hi there

Very happy to announce the line-up for New Year’s Eve at OTO! We’ll be seeing in 2018 in style with the irresistible stylings of The Scorpios – who’ve provided some our favourite moments of 2017 – and a DJ set from Soho’s excellent IF Music record store.

Hailing from Central Sudan and now based in London after fleeing the fundamentalist takeover in that region, the Scorpios are a septet that melds Arabic rhythms and guitar chops (and a kind of swooning cyclical ecstasy) with a raw Eastern funk feel, properly dismantling cultural barriers in pursuit of a unifying rhythmic bliss. Heavy bass, synths, horns and percussions drive through traditional Sudanese forms to create a sound that owes as much to Detroit as it do to Khartoum.

We look forward to seeing you here.
