Known for his work as a pioneering Manchester MC, producer and DJ, as well as his starring roles within spaces such as Riot Jazz and Manchester MC super-collective LEVELZ, Chunky has joined forces with Nezzi N dansflo’s Terrie T and DJ Gardener to bring ‘Piano in the City’, an event featuring styles from the Afro-Mancunion collective of producers, vocalists, and DJs.

Taking you on a journey into the worlds of Amapiano, Afro-Tech, House, and all-round dance experiences, Piano in the City aims to bridge the gap between black dance from across the globe all the way through to where the local diaspora connects.

Hosted by Nezzi N, the event will take place at Mint Lounge and a separate radio show will be broadcast via NTS Radio, bringing the sounds produced and presented by Manchester’s southern afrikan community. The event aims to help showcase the rich aspects of Manchester’s broad and diverse makeup, providing the opportunity for people to engage with these artists, whilst ultimately spotlighting the good vibes throughout the Manchester scene.

Brought together by Chunky, Piano in the City collective will bring good vibes and energy to Mint Lounge with DJs on the line up including; Ms.Dee, Terrie T, Artist Lebo and DJ Gardner as residents. Their radio show can be found on the third Saturday of every month where they weave together a rich tapestry of rhythms and grooves set to purely make your body move.

The next event will take place on bank holiday Monday 27th of December at Mint Lounge, with soulful house aficionado guest Levi Love, and Manchester’s play boy DJ G2 sharing his Southern African roots, as well as Woody Green’s alternative hip hop set. 

Please bring with you your COVID pass, or proof of a negative PCR or lateral flow test when attending the event.
