Saturday night: Abe Odedina and Yabba Funk present…

Yabba Funk
Hang on. Isn’t that an Odedina? Yabba Funk’s new album cover designed by the man himself.

Tomorrow night (Saturday) promises to be a good one at Brixton East. As local artist, Abe Odedina’s well-received Hi Life exhibition draws to a close, Brixton’s Yaaba Funk will be pumping their trademark Afro-beat funk around this old furniture warehouse in an appropriate finale.

But if you’re not already acquainted with Odedina’s revered work, get there early. The night presents a final opportunity to see it all under the one roof. His own vibrant, accessible folk paintings bring the gallery space alive. And as tribal art has a big influence on Odedina’s work, the exhibition also showcases his fascinating private collection of artefacts.

You can read more about Abe Odedina and his work here. And you can buy tickets for Saturday in advance for £7, from Snugg or United80 in Brixton Village. Otherwise, they’ll cost a tenner on the door. (£2 from each sale goes to the DEC Ebola Crisis appeal.)

So if you’re at a loose end, I promise – it’ll be well worth it. More details on the flyer below:
