The Winachi Tribe play gig in aid of Alfie Lund Fund

Electro-funk collective The Winachi Tribe hit Manchester this weekend to raise money for health causes and plug their first album.

The group will be playing at the city’s Met University on Saturday, September 5.

Proceeds from ticket sales go to Brain Tumour Action and the Alfie Lund Fund to help a six-year-old boy from Lancashire who suffers from a rare genetic condition.

The night will include performances by Aziz Ibrahim, The Clone Roses and a DJ set by Cressa.

Although Time For Love is The Winachi Tribe’s debut album release, individual band members are already well established.

Percussion legend Inder Goldfinger was a member of Ian Brown’s band for 13 years, and vocalist Liam and keys player Antony collaborated with Keith Allen in the studio and toured with him as singers in his band Fit Les as part of his Olympic opera ‘Will Cliff Be There?’

Horns come courtesy of Tim Hutton (Ian Brown / The Prodigy). The tracks were mixed by LC Coleman, produced by The Winachi Tribe and mastered at Abbey Road by Geoff Pesche.

Lyrically explosive and musically diverse, The Winachi Tribe were born from the belly of Northern D.Funk collective China White.

The band’s influences are as diverse as their own musical output. Parliament/Funkadelic and Sly & The Family Stone sit alongside The Happy Mondays, Primal Scream, The Rolling Stones and The Beatles, creating a melting pot of references that create an individual sound.
