Performer Profiles

Papa Shango

Who Are They?

A circus rock act with mayhem and madness guaranteed to leave jaws dropped. Seasoned sexual performers and musicians were drawn together by Papa Rob's thrusting ambition to be the most ridiculous live band, next to Coldplay. With the addition of live dancers and backing singers Papa Shango's show has grown into one of the most popular and prestigious spectacles in the UK.

Outlandish and entertaining sex rock band. Childish lyrics and repetitive riffs galore. Pedalling our wares for the last 15 years up and down the country, we only get better and…worse. We are Papa Shangooooo….
