Free entrance to Samedia Shebeen with a United Vibrations / Mop Mop ticket

Cosmodelic, futuristic and “one of the most important bands to come out of the UK” (Jazz Reloaded) United Vibrations fuse afro-punk with jazz, 12Tone and mulatto - inspired by Fela Kuti and Sun Ra. Hypnotic chants, afro-beat-in-a-punk-style musicianship back poetry-come-philosophy lyrics. 

“Breathtaking, simply breathtaking” (The Sunday Times). The Italian Berlin-based Mop Mop brings his project Mop Mop Sound System to Edinburgh, delivering outstanding cross–border grooves, in the flavour of Mulatu Astatke and the Heliocentrics. “Martial rhythms, spooky grooves and out-there atmosphere make this a spirited, spellbinding set” (Mojo).
