Event Info

All of the founder members of Cymande are back to play together again for a special London concert celebrating the work of this seminal British Funk Group. Formed in 1971, the name Cymande comes from a Calypso word for Dove symbolising Peace & Love. Discovered by legendary producer John Schroeder who signed them to Janus Records and produced their debut single "The Message" which hit the top 20 in the USA.

After releasing three albums "Cymande", "Second time around" and "Promised Heights" which featured future Rare Groove and Breaks classics such as "Bra", "Brother's on the Slide" & "Fug" the band disbanded in 1974. Artists who have sampled Cymande over the years include Wu-Tang Clan, EPMD, De La Soul, Dan the Automator, The KLF, Gang Starr, The Fugees, Kenny Dope, Sugarhill Gang & more.
