The Criss Cross Rhythms sound is an eclectic mix of music from the African Continent and Diaspora. 

The music played on vinyl records is a mixture of recorded music spanning the 1950s to present day. The variety of traditional tribal musical styles that came out of Africa during the slave trade and colonisation was taken all over the Western World which forced the African people to improvise and adapt their musical style. 

This new form of musical styles returned to the African Continent in the form of Highlife, African Funk, Afro Beat, Juju, Soukous, African Jazz, Makossa, Zamrock, Fuji mixed with traditional tribal music. 

Which is why King Fred calls his Sound System Criss Cross Rhythms to reflect the cultural melting put of music he plays that has Africa as the heart. 

Come and join King Fred at this year’s Lindisfarne Festival to dance to the sound of Criss Cross Rhythms, you can catch the Criss cross Radio Show every 2nd Saturday of the month on the Method Radio on your smart phone or computer
