Quest Under Capricorn
From deep within the sonic landscape of the cosmos, come the Shaolin Afronauts with their unique brand of interstellar futurist afro-soul. Drawing on a diverse array of musical and other worldly influences the Shaolin Afronauts began their quest in late 2008.
Following the success of their debut release Flight of the Ancients in 2011, which saw the group nominated for an ARIA and Limelight award as well as performances at WOMADelaide and the Adelaide festival in their home country, Australia. Shaolin Afronauts are excited to announce the release of their second album Quest under Capricorn on Freestyle records in 2012. The new album see's the group expanded from an band of 10 to an ensemble of 18 musicians. Interpreting new works covering the emotional and spiritual territory of West African, Ethiopian and avante-garde jazz. The result is a deeper spiritual and musical journey across mystical intergalactic landscapes fuelled by the fire and spirit of legendary musical creatives, Fela Kuti, Mulatu Astake, and Sun Ra.
