Grupo Lokito fuse contemporary Congoese and Latin music creating a modern day cocktail of two of the great world musics.
Formed in 2006 by British Latin pianist Sara McGuiness and Congolese singer Jose Hendrix Ndelo (both featured on this video) the group is a mix of Congolese, Latin and British artists who have made London their home.
