Wild Oyo’s music travels far beyond the fog of West Cornwall where they formed. Bringing off-kilter Talking Heads energy combined with Afrobeat and Space Funk rhythms; Wild Oyo’s sound is a map of many influences, and in both life and music you’ll find them right at its torn edges.


Malcolm Joseph has been the official bass player for the world-famous singer Grace Jones for over 15 years. Malcolm co-founded the band 7th Heaven, the group made it into the Top 10 in the dance charts in 1985, and Top 50 in the national charts. In 2023 the decision was made to form a band to play the album and other material written by Malcolm, Live – so the band Malcolm Joseph and The Unquiet Peace was formed. All of these incredible and unique multi instrumentalists reside or are native to Cornwall.

Born from migrational nostalgia in North London, they define their sound as REBEL CHINA, which is their own take on the exciting and traditional Peruvian chica. Infused with psychedelic rock guitars, synths, and hypnotic rhythms like cumbia, salsa and merengue. Imperio Bamba creates a ritual for liberating the body from the sense of distance, pushing for togetherness!
