Sankorfa



Time present and time past
Are both perhaps present in time future,
And time future contained in time past.
If all time is eternally present
All time is unredeemable.

Once wrote an employee at Lloyd's Bank's Head Office in Cornhill EC2, called T.S. Eliot.

The real and the virtual definitely seem to be coalescing in this video of London band Sankorfa, ex-Guildhall classical perc students - also in EC2. Their name means “looking back to go forward” in one of the nine official languages of Ghana (help me anyone?) The name was previously used by a Ghanaian highlife group based in Los Angeles in the 1980's.

Which probably explains why their PR company chose to send me an email at 9:04pm last night, inviting me to the launch of the 2010 Sankorfa's EP.

Which was taking place on the same night, and had already started.

The EP is called ‘In Between Instruments,’ the band's website is HERE.
