Bio

TwoManTing was formed in 2004 when Sierra Leonean master-drummer Jah-man Aggrey, and virtuoso guitarist Jon Lewis were playing together as part of dance band, Le Cod Afrique, at venues such as Montreux Jazz Festival and WOMAD.

The duo immediately became a hit on the UK festival circuit with their brand of bouncy “Sunshine Afro-roots”. Shows have included Glastonbury, Secret Garden Party, Bestival and Green Man Festival to name but a few. Using guitar, live loops and "found" percussion the duo creates a highly danceable full band sound and their reputation has earned them recent support slots with The Oysterband and major African performers such as Tinariwen and Muntu Valdo. Their acclaimed recordings are often featured on BBC Radio 3 and 6Music.

Performances feature maringa, palm-wine and highlife grooves with thoughtful and thought-provoking lyrics on subjects ranging from childhood memories, political protest and er….duvets. TwoManTing have been touring extensively for the past few years, and in 2012 performed and held workshops at over 30 UK summer festivals.
