We’re really not sure what to expect from Les Fils de Teuhpu, a wacky Parisian sextet who play a range of brass, stringed and percussive instruments, including a washtub bass and, ahem, ‘sousaphone’. Meanwhile, their repertoire is said to incorporate elements of everything from afrobeat (yes!), rocksteady (oh yeah!) and gypsy swing (uh huh!), although the promoter is convinced they’re ska. YouTube clips reveal a veritable rabble-rousing, upstroke-heavy, horn-blowing, banjo-plucking party – complete with everything from tribal chanting to rap. Yet despite the diversity, it somehow all feels quintessentially French. Playing the Arabian peninsula for the first time, the band help to launch a new and improved Wafi rooftop gig series.
