Introducing London Astrobeat Orchestera

The London Astrobeat Orchestra
We are pleased to announce we are now booking for London Astrobeat Orchestra.

The London Astrobeat Orchestra have ignited a movement where cult western band repertoires are blended with African influences and in doing so, have made quite an impact with the critics and the public.

The band bring together the finest West African session musicians in the UK with legendary band leader & bassist Edd Bateman hosting rhythmic influences from Senegal, Guinea Conakry, Mali, Cameroon and Congo. Featuring members from Kanda Bongo Man’s touring line-up with Belangeni Jeannot Musumbu on guitar, Felix Ngindu Kasanganyi on drums, blues rock and astropheric soundscaping guitarist and vocalist Londoner Julian Burdock, and renowned Guinean Master Griot kora player ‘Mosi Conde’.

THE SHOWS
“Stop Making Sense” Talking Heads
Selling out their first 4 debut shows at The Jazz Café, London, the band were affectionately nicknamed the ‘African Talking Heads’. 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 take, on the finest of Mr David Byrne & Co’s timeless compositions and has received critical acclaim.
50 Years of Abbey Road
September marked the 50th anniversary of The Beatles’ last ever recorded studio album Abbey Road so London Astrobeat Orchestra have prepared a West African re-enactment to celebrate this chart topping classic. The Fab Four took great inspiration from the American Rock ‘n’ Roll icons like Elvis and Chuck Berry who’s sound was influenced by the Blues created in the Southern states of the US. The London Astrobeat Orchestra pay tribute to these treasured classics over a backbeat of Afro-Mandingue grooves embellished with intricate Malian Kora. This is AfroBeatleMania!!!

Undisclosed costs I was disappointed that the full cost of the show wasn’t disclosed up front. I.E. the rider cost which I found excessive for such a small show. But the agent did sort it out for me. John Beverly Krakatoa Aberdeen

Amazing roster I've known Midnight Mango since the days when John Smith was an upcoming artist and their roster is now even more amazing and their professionalism is unmatched. Saw some amazing acts at Beautiful Days and Funke and the Two Tone Baby rocked the Bimble Inn with a bouncing crowd.
