Fimber Bravo

Our M50 magazine party at London’s Social saw some great performances from some of our favourite new acts. Alongside Anna Meredith and Mo Kolours, steel pan maestro Fimber Bravo gave one of the sets of the night with his percussion heavy skills coming to the fore. Fimber has enjoyed a great year after collaborating with the likes of Hot Chip and Zongamin on his recent LP Con-Fusion. Check out his performance of live favourite Grey Clouds from the night…

This quarter sees M magazine reaching its 50th issue – and to celebrate we threw a party at the Social in the centre of London.

We invited Anna Meredith, Fimber Bravo and Mo Kolours to play live at the event and help us mark the occasion in a suitably fitting way.

The M team were on hand to capture some of the performances including the brilliant, percussion heavy set from Fimber Bravo.

Fimber has had a long musical career. He was a founding member of the 20th Century Steel Band and has since gone on to collaborate with a huge range of musicians including Winifred Atwell, Sun Ra Arkestra and Blur.

Now signed to Moshi Moshi, he counts Zongamin and Hot Chip as musical connections with his recent record Con-Fusion blending traditional sounds with electronic productions. Watch his performance of live favourite Grey Clouds below…
