African Head Charge & Guests

Co-founded by the legendary underground producer Adrian Sherwood, African Head Charge is a globally-acclaimed, pioneering dub-reggae ensemble led by original co-founder, master percussionist and royal rastaman, Bonjo Iyabhinghi Noah.

Pulsating with tribal drumbeats and chanting from the soul of Africa,

African Head Charge fuse together primal rhythms with heavy psychedelic dub, roots reggae and 21st century electronica. Formed originally as a studio project in 1981, the London-based collective has gone on to achieve semi-legendary cult status, creating 13 albums and gracing stages across the world, from Australia and New Zealand to Glastonbury music festival.

Their epic live show features a line-up of 6-8 world-star performers, fusing together djembes, guitars, drums, keys and vocals with heavy electronic sampling. The collective use this blend of live and electronica to generate an intoxicating soundscape of reggae-inflected drumming, visceral vocals and bottomless, thrumming bass-lines that truly reach to the heart of your being.

Performing classic tracks from their back catalogue, as well as their latest album VOODOO OF THE GODSENT live for the very first time, African Head Charge will be using 2018 to premiere new state-of-the-art visual technology. With a deeper, darker and heavier live sound than ever before, the collective are once again ready to enrapture their global fan-base, as well as reach out to a new generation of fans around the world.
