With razor-sharp lyrics and distinctive flow, Jason Timbuktu Diakité quickly formed himself into an icon in the realms of Swedish hip-hop. Starting in the late nineties in his hometown Lund, about ten albums and several singles later he stands tall as one of the royalties of Swedish music. On a multi-faceted foundation based on musical influences from all over the world, his idiosyncratic voice is known for his confrontative and political narrative, creating a soundtrack for a modern activist. On stage with him is the legendary Damn!, a funk explosion and ensemble of eight members, known for their technical excellence and passion for groove and rhythm. Veterans in the Swedish music scene, they have produced several albums of their own but have also been playing with Timbuktu for decades. The combination vouches for a live experience above most others.
Timbuktu is one of Swedens most revered live artists and has been the receptor of many awards such as the Swedish Grammy, P3 Guld and Rockbjörnen. We're proud to introduce Timbuktu & Damn for their only Stockholm show this summer up on our roof, giving them a chance to play for devoted fans on a more intimate setting than they usually would do.
