MAKOLA

 

Rising duo Makola have their roots in Finland and Ghana but their sound, an irrepressible explosion of hip-hop and afrobeat, could only ever have been forged in London. Their latest track, ‘All My People’, compares the frosty reception Ghanaian immigrants received in the ’50s to the more inclusive attitude that largely reigns in the capital today (“nowadays everyone’s your bruv”), and does so to an infectious beat bolstered by some exuberant samples. Look out for a debut album from Makola in 2017.


Makola have already won huge support from the likes of Radio 1’s DJ Target, Mistajam, Phil Taggart and Beats 1 DJ Julie Adenuga who hailed their debut single ‘This is London’ as one of her ‘’tracks of the summer’’, adding it to her ‘Big 3’, as well as it being on Apple Music UK’s ‘A-list tracks of the week’. Makola are continuing to prove they are a force to be reckoned with.
