The Zong Zing All Stars (DRC)

Zong Zing is a 9 piece band playing uplifting dance music called 'Cavacha'. 'Cavacha' is the core rhythm of Central African music that has given rise to ‘Soukous’ in the Democratic Republic of Congo, ‘Makosa’ in Cameroon and ‘Coupez Decallez’ in the Ivory Coast. 

Two For Joy presents The Folk Ghetto – Luring Touring Bands to Town. We value quality musicianship on real instruments. The Forge is the natural home for such music, having, in our opinion, one of the finest acoustics in town. Come and HEAR the music you want to listen to. We aim to promote bands from across the country and the world, bringing the best in quirky, quality and exceptional Folk, Roots, and World Bands – be they anything from Appalachian to Quebecois, Traditional to Experimental, Gypsy to Germanic.

Two For Joy is the offspring of award winning Folk Club The Magpie’s Nest – awarded BBC Folk Club of 2010. Founded in 2006 by Joe Buirski, it's motto is ‘New Folk, Old Folk & No Folk’, a regular platform for emerging and established Folk and Roots artists both young and old.
