Sunday Joint Presents Mansion Of Snakes + Punto Sabor
Sunday 2 February 2020
Mansion of Snakes are the earth shaking afrobeat meets cosmic funk and punk jazz behemoth from Leeds/London. Fronted by the amazing voice and cutting social commentary of singer and percussionist Vanessa Rani, the band fuses the musical influences of Nigerian afrobeat pioneer Fela Kuti with fiery jazz solos, heady George Clinton/Parliament psychedelic funk and the punk energy of late 1970s New York.
Having formed in 2016, the band released their debut EP followed in 2018 with a vinyl 7″ single for Leeds DIY label Come Play With Me Records. The latter getting airplay on BBC Radio 6 Music and BBC Music Introducing. Mansion Of Snakes are known for their incendiary live shows both at clubs and festivals across the nation. In the past few years they’ve played across the UK at Green Man Festival, Smugglers Festival, Shambala Festival, Beatherder Festival, Flatlands Festival, Long Division Festival and the iconic Craig Charles Funk and Soul Club at Manchester’s Band on the Wall. Their long awaited debut album dropped in November 2019. Mansion Of Snakes Leeds shows are rare these days as the band are spread across the UK in Leeds, London and the South West so do not miss this one.
