London Astrobeat Orchestra performs Talking Heads (Two Dates)

London Astrobeat Orchestra' perform songs from the iconic Talking Heads' '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)

Selling out their first 4 debut shows at The Jazz Café, London, the band were affectionately nicknamed the 'African Talking Heads'.

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 more.

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.
