AFROBEAT SUMMIT with Shaolin Afronauts and The Public Opinion 6

9:00pm, Sat 23 May, 2015

Event Details

Blast off to a galaxy far, far away with the Shaolin Afronauts and their unique brand of interstellar futurist afro-soul.

Experience first hand why their dynamic live performances and unique stage presence have earned them a cult following in this performance that is exhilarating, exciting - and out of this world.

The Shaolin Afronaut's repertoire covers the emotional and spiritual territory of West African, Ethiopian and avant-garde jazz, and they are joined by The Public Opinion 6, the rhythm section behind The Public Opinion Afro Orchestra, who add to the mix a heavy 1970s Lagos influenced groove and pumping pan African melange.
