About Celebrating Sanctuary: TwoManTing (Sierra Leone / UK)

Running time  1hr

Drummer Jah-man Aggrey, from Sierra Leone and guitarist Jon Lewis formed TwoManTing in 2004 when playing together as part of dance band, Le Cod Afrique, at venues such as Montreux Jazz Festival and WOMAD. The duo became a hit on the UK festival circuit with their brand of bouncy “Sunshine Afro-roots”. Using guitar, live loops and percussion the duo creates a highly danceable full band sound. They have performed extensively and their music is often featured on BBC Radio 3 and 6Music. Shows feature palm-wine, acoustic dub and highlife grooves with thoughtful and thought-provoking lyrics. They have been a regular contributor to Celebrating Sanctuary's programme for many years and we are delighted to welcome them back to celebrate their 20th Anniversary.
