The event creator says
Our very first GUMBO throwdown in Kensington Market was live! Just ask about it!

Sean Sax and Deemaks jumped around the musical map from Afrobeats to Azonto to JDilla to Soca to 90s House to Afrohouse to Ol' Skool Dancehall. They absolutely killed it going back to back and left the crowd literally begging them not to stop playing even after the lights came on.

We'd love to keep the vibe the same. So No posers please. Just pass through and come party with your people. Summer might be over but it stays hot in the GUMBO Kitchen.

This time around we have assembled a top notch team of DJs to cook up that goodness.
DJ Donet - the female capo of Afrobeats DJs
DJ Camron - the scratch and blend master from Ottawa
DJ Shai - (Xixgon Intl) pure chunes from time..
DJ Sean Sax - back again!

Ps This is our last GUMBO in Toronto this year before we take the party to another city. Hint: The party is called GUMBO after all :-) So come through and catch us while you can.

All Love. Always.
Supafrik X Shaman Fam


Everybody makes the flavourful Gumbo soup in their own way and call it by their own name. The Gumbo soup as it is known in Louisiana is called Okro or draw soup in Nigeria, Callalo in Trinidad and Quimbombo in Cuba.

The thought behind the new GUMBO music series, debuting in Kensington Market this Caribana Thursday, is similarly as simple as it is complex. It's a combination of sounds that overlap, blend and clash to create a delectable music palate.

It is the connection between Afrobeats and Soca that intersects with Reggae/Dancehall and overlaps with Samba, Baille funk and Afro house, with a dash of hip hop & R&B. They feed off each other and they all feed us. Imagine Black Coffee + Shabba Ranks + Machel Montano + WizKid all in the sound system and you end up with GUMBO.

This is what you get when a Supafrik & a Shaman meet. We select the DJs, they play the music and you bring the vibes. Together we make GUMBO

Nothin' but goodness.
