A glorious mash-up of British pop sounds with a traditional Kenyan inflection, the Owiny Sigoma Band come to Manchester following a Europe-wide tour with Thom Yorke’s Atoms For Peace. The unique collective have gone from strength to strength since their conception in Nairobi in 2009, with two albums released through Gilles Peterson’s Brownswood label championing a nuanced and exciting sound, expressed best through captivating live performances. Their show at Soup on 27 July is their only date outside London this year, with the afterparty coming courtesy of the hotly tipped So Flute crew. Manc stalwart Tom Boogizm provides the support before the band’s performance.

Sat 27 Jul, Soup Kitchen, 31-33 Spear Street, M1 1DF, 7.30pm, £7, www.skiddle.comwww.facebook.com
