London Astrobeat Orchestra are bringing their spectacular live show to venues across the UK over the next few months.  Band leader and bassist Edd Bateman has brought together West Africa’s finest session musicians to form a group that fuses rhythmic influences from Senegal, Guinea Conakry, Mali, Cameroon and Congo with the music of legendary new wave pioneers Talking Heads.

The band put their dizzying spin on Talking Heads classics from albums such as Remain In Light, Speaking In Tongues and Fear Of Music to produce a simply unforgettable live experience.

As Hifi Pig’s John Scott said in his review of last year’s Edinburgh show , if London  Astrobeat Orchestra are playing within a hundred miles of you, just go.
