Pause and Shook Magazine have teamed up to present this special event inspired by the Soul Power film which came out this summer. Soul Power is an amazing documentary about the three day festival which took place in Zaire in ’74 prior to the infamous Ali/ Foreman “Rumble in The Jungle” fight, and featured performances from James Brown, BB King, Bill Withers, Miriam Makeba, Celia Cruz, the Fania Allstars and more…

DJs Charlie Dark (Blacktronica), Eric Soul (Afrogroov), Bemi (Amplified), Eric Lau, Juven and H!ts (Pause) will provide the soundtrack to a serious hot and sweaty dancing session that will make the Market Place feel like Kinshasa whatever the English summer is saying. They’ll also have an Afroboutique and in-house stylist who will be making you all look fine – it is the Market Place after all.

The event is being produced by Put Me On It, who have arranged a limited number of discount tickets for a screening of the film at The Electric Cinema on Portobello Road earlier in the day at 3pm. Tickets go on sale on TODAY and the DISCOUNT CODE IS “PUT ME ON IT”!!! The Box Office Number is: 020 7908 9696

You can then hop on the bus or a couple of stops on the tube afterwards to the Market Place for the afterparty. They’ll also have some t-shirts and DVDs to give away on the night, and maybe even a few more surprises..
