Sorry... there are currently no upcoming events.


They’re the band you don’t know you know - a bedrock of hip hop and dance culture. To put it simply, Cymande rewrote the rules of black music.

Formed in London in the early 1970s at a time when British soul was obsessed with and heavily influenced by American artists, Cymande ploughed their own unique furrow. Daring and innovative, the band took influences from their Guyanese and Jamaican roots, fusing reggae bass lines, Afro-tinged Nyabinghi percussion, psychedelic touches and American-style funk into a unique blender they coined as “Nyah-rock.”  Hippy and Rasta stances existed in rock and reggae, but Cymande were the first to bring them to soul.
