Global Rhythm

Global Rhythm (Peppery's collaboration with Caribbean Exposé and Ipswich Borough Council) is always a colourful and exciting celebration of worldwide culture. It's bigger and better this year with a carnival procession and three stages showcasing music and dance from South America and the Caribbean to Africa and beyond. Headlining on the Peppery Stage this year, SAMBA MAPANGALA with his ORCHESTRE VIRUNGA (pictured) are one of the classic African bands from last 25 years. Known and loved throughout East Africa and beyond for his astounding voice, Samba creates an innovative mix of the best Congolese rumba and soukous with an earthier Kenyan style. The Peppery Stage also features ska and reggae from GOLDMASTER ALLSTARS, authentic Cuban son from SON YAMBU, and Balkan gypsy with latin and afro beats with a twist of hip-hop from the MAGIC TOMBOLINOS. And there are full programmes on the CARIBBEAN EXPOSÉ and UCS SPIEGLETENT stages, a carnival procession with EASTBOUND CARNIVAL and IPSWICH BLOCO, food, drink, storytelling and more.

Hank Wangford

with BJ Cole, Martin Belmont, Kevin Foster & Roy Dodds

What better way to beat those winter blues than a great night of the finest country music this side of Tallahassee. For the past 30 years Hank Wangford has been a leading British torchbearer for country music, illuminating us with insights such as "I ain't married but the wife is". Hank said "It's in my nature to send things up, even things that I love. If you make people laugh you've opened them up."

Peppery regulars will know that Hank Wangford exudes star quality, andThe Lost Cowboys never disappoint with their deadpan humour, fine harmonies and second - to - none musicianship.
