ARSENAL MIKEBE UG

Arsenal are a cutting edge percussion ensemble living on the outskirts of Kampala. Having developed a heavy body style of drumming interspersed with soul vocals & jungle infused trance, this is the industrial organic rhythm machine dressed in sexy Armani. Arsenal is comprised of Ssentongo Moses, Dratele Epiphany and Luyambi Vincent de Paul. Traditional drummers in their own right, their custom percussion system was created by Ugandan master sculptor Henry Segamwenge all cast in steel. Whether out of coincidence or design the percussive system sounds like an 808 cargo cult device, sounding both highly electronic & acoustic at the same time.

Shows at: BRDCST Festival (Belgium) ; CTM (Germany) ; Nyege Nyege (Uganda) ; Boiler Room Festival (UK)…

Album Release date: February 2023
