Steam Down

Steam Down is an artist collective, weekly event and music community based in Deptford, South-East London.

Founded by Ahnanse in May 2017, Steam Down is comprised of Alex Rita, Brother Portrait, Sawa Manga, Theon Cross, Nadeem, Benjamin Appiah, Dominic Canning and Nache. Their weekly sessions are a magical explosion of Afrofuturism, grime and future soul, fused together with the spontaneity of jazz.

Previously having had guest appearances from the likes of Kamasi Washington, Sampa The Great, Nubya Garcia and Sons of Kemet, these exuberant congregations are an immersive musical experience for audiences, where healing vibes and compulsive dancing are just as important as the music.
