LONDON ASTROBEAT ORCHESTRA
_ Main Venue _
After multiple sold out shows in Dublin, London Astrobeat Orchestra will return, this time performing songs from the iconic Talking Heads live at Whelans, 20th June 2020. Tickets on sale this Friday at 10AM.
‘Stop Making Sense’ movie, live. Focusing on tracks from the cult classic albums ‘Remain In The Light’ and ‘Speaking in Tongues’ the ‘London Astrobeat Orchestra’ are a funky, rhythmic, hypnotic, anthemic, uplifting, groovy, percussive, smack on point, earth-shatteringly tight, live band.
“This is The Talking Heads – Stop Making Sense delivered live & with a degree of raw, cosmic, human energy that will totally, utterly & completely blow your wig off..!”…..(World Headquarters)
London Astrobeat Orchestra have sold out their first 4 debut shows at The Jazz Café, London, the band were affectionately nicknamed the ‘African Talking Heads’.
When you consider the afrobeat vibes, that run through all the best Talking Heads albums, it’s both appropriate & correct that this collective of musicians, from West Africa, Europe & beyond should offer this completely unique, razor sharp, liquid funk & jaw-droppingly tight take, on the finest of Mr David Byrne & Co’s timeless compositions.
They comprise, quite honestly of the finest West African session musicians alive on this planet today… With legendary band leader & Bassist Edd Bateman hosting rhythmic influences from Senegal, Guinea Conakry, Mali, Cameroon and Congo. Featuring Lingala singer and soukous aristocrat ‘King Fire’, blues rock and astropheric soundscaping guitarist and vocalist ‘Julian Burdock’, Guinean Master Griot kora player ‘Mosi Conde’ and the mbalax rhythm machine Badou N’Diaye
